Four AmCham members, Blackrock, Citi, Morgan Stanley and MSCI, decided to launch a new initiative to increase the attractiveness of the financial sector and show the benefits as well as the opportunities it provides to the next generation of talent. Project participants intend to nurture talent, support universities and attract Hungarian workers living abroad.
Participation at Brain Bar
The four companies - together with AmCham - were featured in two Brain Bar panel discussions to inform the young audience about the wide range of activities they are engaged in, the type of positions they have, and the business values they create.
In the first panel, young talents talked about their path to their current job and what kind of advantages they see in pursuing a career in this sector. The second panel looked at the matter from the investors’ and company leaders’ perspective, discussing why Hungary is an attractive destination to large companies.
Joint interview in Portfolio
In July 2019, Róbert Ésik (HIPA), Melanie Seymour (BlackRock), Kevin Murray (Citi), Norbert Fogarasi (Morgan Stanley) and Ákos Janza (MSCI) gave a joint interview to Portfolio to introduce the US Financial Institutions cooperation and discuss the challenges of the Hungarian labor market.
Career Networking Events series in London
As attracting talents from abroad is one of the main objectives, BlackRock, Citi, Morgan Stanley and MSCI also participated at the Career Networking Events series organized by the Embassy of Hungary in London to support young professionals interested in opportunities arising at the Budapest offices. While featuring a selection of job opportunities, guests also had a chance to receive career advice from their HR and recruitment teams.
