Preparing students for employment
Our Careers Service has twenty staff across all our French and international campuses, providing support for students across all programmes and all countries in finding a job.
This support is structured around the following aspects:
Assistance in writing a CV, matching skills and strengths to employer needs when drafting the cover letter and during the interview pitch, mastering professional skills in different situations and different countries
Understanding the range of careers associated with each programme, in order to transfer a personal interest for a subject into a true career plan, and use any network, including the Alumni network for this purpose.
The service is notably based on combining the latest generation of employment support tools (to build a personalised career plan) and is supplemented by individual coaching, in order to hone specific areas of the plan to match our programme specifics.
Our Careers Service provides many varied opportunities to meet companies (forums, company presentations, meetings with graduates in specific sectors, recruitment sessions, etc.). These meetings are regularly set up with our extensive alumni network.
In general, at these events, students come into contact with the major, well-known international groups across all business sectors covered by SKEMAs courses, and which fit with the school's DNA.
All the SKEMA courses give students a wide range of significant in-company experiences (internships, apprenticeships, gap years, etc.), which represent 25 to 50% of study time, and often take place outside of the student’s home country.
SKEMA takes particular care with employment support schemes for disabled students and has created special relationships with companies who are committed to employing disabled staff.
