Alberto Minali one of the key players of Univerò, the Festival of Placement hosted by the University of Verona
Four important personalities of the Veronese financial world, with as many points of view on the world of work and new professions. At the conference entitled Parallel Interviews: professional paths and visions of the future sponsored as part of Univerò, the Festival of Placement organised by ESU in cooperation with the University of Verona, the CEO of Cattolica Assicurazioni, Alberto Minali was one of the speakers along with Matteo Montan, CEO of the Athesis Group, Giacomo Marino, General Manager of the Cariverona Foundation and Marco Carletto, CEO of Calzedonia.
The key players of the meeting were asked to tell the large body of students that crowded the halls of the new university complex of Santa Marta, site of the Faculty of Economics of the university, how their careers began. Retracing their studies, formative experiences, personal choices and fundamental passages of their professional path, the four managers tried to give the students present an opportunity to reflect on the criteria around which the current employment market is concentrated.
“The biggest mistake that one can make when taking the first steps in the job market is to hope to get in by holding a position that we have created in our heads, because that one doesn’t exist. So start, jump in and never stop looking around - was Alberto Minali’s advice. - Remember that expertise is a necessary requirement but is not enough: what matters is in particular the aptitude, the situational intelligence of knowing how to identify those paths closest to your vocation: the roads that open on their own, by chance, and those that you have to learn to create yourselves, without losing sight of the deep motivation that leads you to wanting a certain career. And this is what real success in life depends on, that it does not necessarily mean having a career: any activity, if driven by motivation, has its own enormous dignity”.
