The Asian Institute of Management’s (AIM) Career Services Office (CSO) was invited by Symplicity Marketing Manager Daile Smith to present their experience with the Symplicity Career Services Management (CSM) system utilized to launch its career services platform earlier in the year. The webinar was held on July 19, 2022 with directors, heads, and officers of at least 25 educational institutions from Australia and Southeast Asia in attendance.
The Career Services Office of AIM conducted a successful two-day career fair in May for the Aboitiz School of Innovation, Technology, and Entrepreneurship using the new platform, AIM-REACH (AIM Recruitment, Employment, and Careers Hub) powered by Symplicity. Over 110 students and alumni attended the affair with 27 sponsors and exhibitors participating, while over seven webinars were held.
AIM-REACH engages students, alumni, partner companies, and recruiters with the Career Services Office, strengthening the network between all parties. It also features all CSO information and programmes such as consultation, available positions, applications, and other upcoming events.
During the webinar conducted by Symplicity entitled, “How the Asian Institute of Management leveraged CSM for Employer and Industry Engagement”, the CSO team explained how AIM-REACH benefited from the platform and shared the marketing campaigns used to implement the service. The most maximized modules were Events, the Document Library, and Counseling, all of which continue to aid students to apply to job openings, access archives for past events, and tailor their consultation with the CSO for the positions they are seeking. Future modules to be launched include a mentorship program, internship review, and on-campus recruitment allowing corporate partners to book, present, and hire at the institute.
The webinar showcased the seamless partnership between AIM and Symplicity, and the benefits both gained from the association. AIM, as the foremost postgraduate school in the Philippines, and one of the top in Asia, is committed to continuous service and infrastructure improvement. And Symplicity provides a 360-degree employability and student services solution to help streamline protocols and processes in student, alumni, and corporate partner engagement.
