The Career Department

CV

Located at the heart of the school, the career department strives to providing the best possible placement and business opportunities to all of our students.

To do so, we have designed a 6-step career roadmap, which aims at helping our students explore their options, understand the job market and their personal priorities, and give them all the tools to achieve their goals.

On top of that, we also provide our students with up-to-date job & internship opportunities, and organize many events throughout the year: company presentations, seminars, conferences, round tables, mock interviews with recruiters, career fairs...

6 key services to facilitate your placement:

  • Career advice
  • Networking with Alumni
  • Company events
  • Career workshops
  • Internship and job offers
  • Handling of compulsory work experience requirements.

Finally, we also connect our students with inspiring alumni, not only through a dedicated Alumni Fair in January, but also within the frame of a mentoring program.

The HEC Incubator

Many students develop exciting ideas for new businesses before, during and after their time at HEC Paris, but are sometimes deterred by the high risks that setting up a new firm might entail. The HEC Incubator helps participants manage these start-up risks so that they can pursue their ambitions with greater confidence.

The Incubator program involves active mentoring from Faculty and Alumni, and is supported by a three-step pre-incubation phase. Throughout the ‘Introducing Entrepreneurship’, ‘Sandbox’ and ‘Springboard’ steps, participants can gather constructive feed-backs on their ideas before deciding whether to submit them for full Incubator selection.

Nineteen Chairs and Centers

Strongly backed by leading firms, the nineteen chairs and centers ensure that the content of our courses are both in line with the latest research and the needs of today’s recruiters.
