Business forum: 40 companies at the EPF to meet with our students
On Thursday, October 15th, EPF hosted on its campus of Sceaux nearly 40 companies during its 25th “Business Forum”. After 2 conferences in the morning about jobs abroad and the "Generation Z", students had the opportunity to participate in resume-writing workshops, meet recruiters for job interviews, exchange with graduated students, develop their network and take pictures “like the pros”!
