My engagement with IBL extended beyond my first placement, and the IBL team were very welcoming, responsive and supportive as I moved from my first role to another. Aside from helping me understand my long-term career objectives, they worked with me to identify short-term career goals and an employer profile that went beyond traditional factors such as company size and compensation to assessing the ideology, work culture, industry relevance, and impact potential. This kind of insight, gained from years of practical experience and sector knowledge, was invaluable. – Kulsoom, 2014 Participant & former Nokia marketing executive
