Enterprise Forum: over 300 professionals on hand to recruit students
On 17th November, ESTACA organised an Enterprise Forum in Paris-Saclay.
More than 300 professionals from companies and institutions attended. Eight hundred 4th and 5th year students came to talk to them, find internships and jobs and discuss career opportunities. This was a key event for our future engineers, and part of a comprehensive career pathway.
It was also a great opportunity to get noticed by recruiters.
During the event, companies were present with stands, vehicles and models. They promoted their expertise, showcased the diversity of engineering professions and presented their internships and permanent positions to our engineering students.
Students met innovation professionals and experts, discovered different professions and businesses, chatted with alumni and discussed career opportunities. Student associations were also there to present their projects to companies present, with the aim of finding new partners.
All transport sectors were represented: aeronautics, automotive, rail, space and naval.
Support for building career pathways
The enterprise forum is part of a wider process of supporting students in building their career plans. This support is provided throughout the five years of study and includes: meetings, conferences and site visits to discover more about professions, help with writing CVs and cover letters in French and English, a range of tools for finding internships and jobs, including an ESTACA internship platform where companies post more than 1,600 offers each year, interview simulations, etc. These initiatives make it easier for young graduates to find jobs, and 90% of them are hired before they graduate.
