The Journey of Becoming a Self-Sustained Career Center by Employer Partnership

By Francesca Saracino
Recorded June 9, 2020

The Career Service of Politecnico di Milano, one of Europe’s top leading public universities for Engineering, Architecture and Design, has been active for about 15 years and it has grown from a team of 5 to a team 19 and from serving 1,000 to over 10,000 students every year, thanks to a business model based on fee-based partnerships with employers. In my webinar I will share the journey that has led the Career Service to become free from the uncertainty of central budget, bringing insights that will surely help you see how this can apply to your context as well.

Francesca Saracino is Head of the Career Service office at Politecnico di Milano, one of Europe’s top leading universities for technical studies. Being a native American-Italian bilingual and having obtained a Master degree in Languages and Cultural Mediation, she sees how students and employers need help in understanding each other because they speak different languages. The Career Service she manages is entirely self-financed and serves 45,000 students with 19 people in staff. Since 2018, she also manages the first Diversity & Inclusion Program of the University, called POP (Pari Opportunità Politecniche). Previously, she worked as an English language teacher and translator.  Francesca is also a lindy-hop dancer, yoga learner, occasional singer and concert addict.
