The first presented careers in marketing, communication, and business development, whereas the second dealt with finance, auditing, and management control. Thousand students attended these two fairs to learn from the experience of the professionals on hand to describe their work. In all, some ten companies, presented one profession each: risk analysis for Euler Hermes; management control for Leroy Merlin; wealth management for BNP Paribas; product management for Danone; project management for Ubisoft, and so on. EDHEC students were thus able to discover exciting professions presented by exciting people. A description of the profession from A to Z, career choices, definition of plans, the techniques characteristic of the profession, not to mention to mention anecdotes—“the digital world is vital”; each speaker described his or her professional career before a packed lecture hall. For the students, the aim of these professions fairs was to provide them guidance in their professional choices, as well as to help them develop their networks, particular during the roundtables at which EDHEC alumni spoke directly with the students interested in their experience of the profession. Be sure not to miss the next professions fair, which will take place on November 20.
