The industry under the spotlight
Most of the professionnals who attended the event on Mai 28th at the Belfort Chamber of Commerce and Industry represented companies from the area of Belfort, but some were also attracted from other neighboring regions :
Alstom, Digit Prime, Mahytec, Altran, Gaussin Manugistique, Faurecia, General Electric, Vétoquinol, Trinaps, Lufkin, Endress+Hauser and Assystem. In other words, all these companies demonstrate the strong industrial footprint in the Franche-Comté region and each one of them supports the economic fabric of the area.
Energy, pharmaceutical industry, telecommunications, transport, … an amazing cocktail of competencies that confirms the strength of the industry in the Eastern part of France.
During almost two hours, the companies accepted to play the game of round-table sessions. The challenge ? 10 minutes for each roundtable to arouse the students’ curiosity by presenting the DNA of the company and its ambitions, before introducing the potential job opportunities.
Attractive Franche-Comté – networking spirit expected
The watchword of the evening ? Attractivity. This word took all its meaning during that event and each participant was open to dialogue. A true networking approach working in both ways. The future graduates indeed benefited from this opportunity to gather some contacts among the human resources staff of dynamic industrial comapnies and to get to know the companies needing talents in the area.
For the professionnals, the goal was above all to put forward their companies and to tick a box in the students’ minds. Indeed, even if the represented companies are dynamic, they are rarely actively approached by the students when the latter are looking for job opportunities. This event was then a great opportunity to interact face-to-face with the future graduates.
With this event, the cluster proves its willingness to put forward industry by giving to students a more global view of their surrounding industrial environment.
A successful evening, enjoyed by the companies and the future graduates, and that proves that the absent are always in the wrong.
