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.

Where

Online.
