A diploma, a job


Legrand Foundation, FACE

Having noted that at the end of their work experience placements, few young people actually find employment with their host company, the Legrand Foundation wishes to establish a system for supporting Legrand group sandwich placement students in France in their search for employment at the end of their placement.

This system includes:

  • Group support followed by individual sponsorship for placement students in establishing a career plan
  • Training modules (for example, "Understanding the company")
  • Assistance with increasing their experience and validating their career plans
  • Advice on job-hunting techniques and preparation for recruitment interviews
  • The organisation of contact events for placement students and companies (employment forums, "breakfast" meetings, recruitment sessions, etc.)
  • Each project participant enjoys personalised support according to his/her professional project and the school schedule
Young people are our future and, to my mind, doing everything to help them find employment is vital
