EDHEC Job Forum
The Centre is an invaluable resource; it provides comprehensive career services to help students prepare for their professional lives.
The Career Centre provides students with a wealth of information about recruitment processes, job contents and industries, and posts more than 17 000 job and internship offers a year.
The Career Centre also offers career assessment and guidance with the TICD ‘Talent Identification & Career Development’ programme. The TI&CD programme, the only one of its kind in European business schools, offers students valuable insight and tailored career guidance. Inspired by corporate best practices, the programme is designed to accompany and prepare students for the international recruitment process run by major companies. In 2010, the TI&CD programme was recognised as one of our best practices by AACSB and EQUIS.
In addition to personal coaching sessions with career advisors and external consultants who provide individualised support in developing personal career plans, the Centre, through workshops, counselling and assessment, helps students gain the self-awareness necessary to build an effective job and internship search.
Numerous events to streamline career plans and find suitable internships and jobs are also organised on a regular basis:
