What could be more strategic for my company among workshops and presentations?

Presentations are brief talks (25 or 55 min) to describe your company, operations and the profiles you are searching among students. If you want to give an overview of who you are and what makes you a strong employer, this is the right spot!

Note: Open to all public (60 to 100 people).

Workshops are in-detail and more interactive talks (2h55m) where you are exposing a subject that could target a more specialised public. If you are aiming to recruit students from certain backgrounds for specific positions this is the time to go into details ! Workshops can be as personalised as you wish, you could devote some time for a brief presentation followed by an atèlier or round table. If you wish to offer appetizers, please let us know. Workshops can be truly tailor-made according to your needs.

Note: Open exclusively to the students your company authorises (30 to 50 people)

 

Workshops, any ideas?

In a workshop you are free to innovate, the most interesting sounds the better! Think about anything that would buzz into young students’ minds, remember who is your public. Recent graduates are preoccupied to find a suitable job, make sure to highlight which strengths you are searching in your graduates and how the lifestyle of their future job is.
