The CEOx1Day program offers a win-win for students and executives alike:
Benefits for participating students:
- Real-world experience: The rigorous selection process provides valuable skills and experiences for future job searches. In addition, semi-finalists participate in group exercises and one-on-one meetings, thereby strengthening their presentation and interviewing skills.
- Deep insights into personal leadership skills: Two out of three applicants will have the opportunity to receive a personalized leadership assessment and report from Hogan Assessments. The report will provide feedback on leadership skills, including relationship-building, goal-setting, and strategic thinking, in addition to areas of development.
- Professional networking exposure: Semi-finalists have the opportunity to make connections with peers and professionals in the executive search field.
- Putting valuable leadership skills to work: Finalists spend a full day shadowing a CEO (including one-on-one time), learning about their background, career path, and leadership approach, and take part in their daily activities, as they attend meetings, speak with organizational stakeholders, and other experiences unique to each CEO's workday.
