A possibility to build your network of contacts!
In addition to meet conference speakers, our participants have the opportunity to benefit from a 4-6 week internship in an area that interests them and will provide them with recent working experience.
Information meeting with a professional in a work sector or field that is of interests you. This service allows you to obtain information on the job market and develop your network of contacts.
Each participant has the option of being paired with a mentor or a volunteer, specially trained, to accompany them through the process of reintegrating into the workforce. The purpose of the accompaniment is to offer our participants support and encouragement through this transitional period in their lives as well as helping them improve their language skills.
The program includes adapted computer support, as well as certain compensatory allowances that may be granted depending on your situation (e.g. child care, public transportation costs).
