This year the students had the chance to participate in office workshops at IMPSA, Kimberly-Clark and Globant.
At IMPSA the students were welcomed by Rubén Sánchez Perco who is the Commercial Director. IMPSA is a company dedicated to provide energy from renewable resources. Sánchez Perco commented that even though some developing countries, like Argentina, have implemented new regulations in order to reach a percentage of the energy from renewable resources, one of the most important challenges is still getting funding.

Besides, she mentioned that the company has started the communication with consumers through social networks. Regarding the impact of social networks when hiring human resources, Storch remarked that, for students without professional experience, universities are still the best channel.
