Our main recruiting Fairs
Our major recruiting fairs take several different forms. There are events dedicated to key sectors (Consulting, Finance, Tech & Digital, Legal), as well as specific student profiles, such as the MBA Career Week or the annual school-wide HEC Carrefours Career Fair, which is organized by the students themselves. These are unmissable events for our students, participants, and recent graduates: come and meet your future talent!
Our recruiting fairs are ideal platforms for boosting your reputation and visibility among our students, thanks to these exclusive interactions that take place yearly on the HEC campus. Each fair is an opportunity for our students to engage directly with your teams and enhance their understanding of your company, its culture, and its different lines of work, challenges and expectations. They provide the optimal conditions for recruiting top international talent for your business activities around the world, all in one one place and at one time.
