Looking for work? How can SKEMA Alumni help you

17 May 2021

One of the SKEMA Business School missions is to help its new graduates with work placement and support its members in their job search. We make every effort to help our alumni integrate the workforce. For this, we offer different services and tools.


One-to-one coaching

(Open to all job-seeking alumni)

SKEMA Alumni’s BOOST package provides two hours of one-to-one coaching.

This coaching service provided by our partner Helicoach is delivered online and gives you access to 50+ coaches between the hours of 6 am and 11 pm, 7 days a week, with five languages available. These coaching sessions are completely confidential. They are an opportunity for you to share any problems, clarify your career goals, and practise your interviewing skills. The coaching is fully customised to your needs.

"I just finished my first one-hour coaching session. I found it incredible. It really did me a lot of good." - Marine (SKEMA 2020)

Online workshops

(Open to all job-seeking alumni)

Developed with our partner Helicoach, these online workshops held in small groups of ten people are an opportunity to discuss any issues you are having with your job hunting. They are a chance to tap into the group’s collective intelligence and to share your own experiences. These hour-long online workshops are run by coaches who are experts in their area of specialisation.

Before each online workshop, attendees must watch a replay of the webinar covering the relevant topics. This way, they come to the workshop with all the theory they need and can jump right in to practising/exchanging.

"I attended an online workshop that turned out to be really interesting. Thanks to the invaluable advice from the coaches, I was able to tweak my CV and get feedback from the coaches and the other alumni present." - Ali (SKEMA 2020)

Examples of workshop topics:

HOW TO OPTIMIZE YOUR CV/RESUME (in French and English)

MAKE A CONVINCING PITCH (in French and English)

BOOST YOUR NETWORK (in French and English)
