Vocation days

Exchange with our students

The Vocation Days are a unique opportunity for your company to boost the visibility of your employer brand and to discover and recruit our #earlymakers. You will exchange and discuss with our students about operational and societal issues.

These special days are defined by #multi: #multi-sectorial, #multi-campus, #multi-program and #multi-format but also by a limited number of participating companies to maximize your brand employer exposure to students!

We want to allow our students to be able to look for a job and to meet employers anywhere, from anywhere, with no restrictions nor barriers and this is the reason why all our Vocation Days will be online.




The schedule of a typical Vocation Day:

  1. Multi-employers round tables. Round tables are there to give students awareness on jobs and sectors, you will be able to share with them your background and your vision of a specific issue related to the topic of the day.
  2. HR speed meeting (optional). You will have the possibility to host a 30 minutes session to talk about HR related topics and to give students insights on your recruiting process (internships, alternances, etc.).
  3. 1-to-1 chats. You will be able to meet students on 1-to-1 chats. 1-to-1 chats are there to give you the possibility to meet students for a mock interviews, for a real interview or to simply meet them individually. It's up to you!
