Prerequisites: for a correction of CV and/or cover letter, the documents submitted to the Career Center must have been carefully prepared. For this purpose, the Career Center offers you tutorials to follow. Any preparation deemed insufficient will postpone your appointment.

Emergency

Emergency appointments are offered if you must apply or be interviewed within 10 days.

Quickly find your first job after graduation by gaining work experience while you are still a student. An internship will allow you to develop skills, clarify your interests, discover the professional world, build up a network and obtain a work certificate useful in your future job search.

Some faculties offer a mandatory credited internship program. These are called "intracursus" internships. In addition, we offer "extracursus" internships. These are internships which you can do during your studies to increase your employability.

Our counsellors are at your disposal for information and advice.

 

To facilitate the transition from university to the world of work, the mentoring program connects master's level students (mentees) with university graduates (mentors).

As a mentee, you will be connected with a graduate in your field of interest who will follow you for seven months. Through several interviews and workshops, you will be brought to:

  • Get to know your future professional field better and understand its needs.
  • Discover your assets and skills.
  • Establish your first network contacts
