Build your own career rocket !

You were told to keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground. Join us and make this piece of advice possible! You can plan your own career by following your desires and staying in touch with the job market reality at the same time.
You may think: easier said than done… True, so take some time to reflect on how you can build your career rocket to catch your stars:
  • first stage – know yourself: values, motivations and choices, skills
  • second stage – proactively identify the job opportunities in France, Germany and Luxembourg: advertised and unadvertised job market, networking and testimonials
  • third stage – construct an effective job application for the selected countries: CV, cover letter and job interview
