Bril­liant chance to be a CEO for one month

The Courier-Mail - Career One - - Classifieds -

FIFTY en­tre­pre­neur­ial and am­bi­tious young pro­fes­sion­als from around the world will be given the chance to be­come “CEO for One Month” along­side the top man­age­ment of HR provider Adecco Group.

In Aus­tralia, the win­ner will hold the role of Aus­tralia Adecco CEO for One Month along­side Ger Doyle dur­ing June and the global win­ner will be­come Group CEO for One Month work­ing with Alain De­haze.

Adecco started the pro­gram to ad­dress youth un­em­ploy­ment, which in Aus­tralia sits at about 12.1 per cent – more than dou­ble the gen­eral job­less rate. They say about 40 per cent of em­ploy­ers cite a lack of ex­pe­ri­ence as the main bar­rier for en­try-level va­can­cies.

Last year’s Aus­tralian CEO for One Month, James Kaluschke, now works as a client ser­vice as­so­ciate with Mor­gan Stan­ley Wealth Man­age­ment in Bris­bane.

“(The) pro­gram pro­vided me with an in­valu­able in­sight to up­per man­age­ment,” he says.

“Dur­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence I made im­por­tant busi­ness con­tacts which have ul­ti­mately led me to my cur­rent po­si­tion at Mor­gan Stan­ley.”

De­haze says the fu­ture de­pends on the skills, con­fi­dence and ex­pe­ri­ence of to­day’s young­sters. “It’s a shared re­spon­si­bil­ity to help them build their ca­reers through train­ing, guid­ance and op­por­tu­ni­ties,” he says.

“This is what CEO for One Month is about. Young­sters will chal­lenge them­selves, gain hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence along­side Adecco’s top man­age­ment, and get a taste of how to run a global com­pany.”

On­line ap­pli­ca­tions for 2016 CEO for One Month are open un­til April 15 at adec­cow­ay­
