What for? Boosting your career!

The ultimate aim is to easily access higher positions, earn more money or make a significant shift in your career. But there are no shortcuts.

All this can only be achieved by undergoing a radical transformation process with clear objectives (which skills and competencies to develop) and full involvement in the program. That means seizing opportunities, initiating engaging projects, being willing to accept tremendous changes, and developing your network. Recruiters will recognize your investment and ability to leave your comfort zone to enter the world of challenges.

No-one gets results simply by graduating. It requires far more! As we state in our program: “The more you put in, the more you get out.”

Does the program provide placement services?

No, campus placement is not provided per se. However, a Career Booster service is provided (free of charge) to offer solid support in your career development. Due to our strong industry network, we can provide contacts and support to help with your search for Corporate Missions / Internships (or jobs)

Why does the program NOT provide placement services?

1. At the executive/senior level, which is the profile of our participants, placements are not only inefficient, they can even be counter-productive. In reality, executive participants are usually approached directly by headhunters or recruiters, or more frequently they have an existing network. Moreover, ‘pushing’ profiles in this way is no guarantee of success and gives recruiters the impression that the candidate lacks independence and is not very attractive in terms of employment. Would you recruit such a person for your team?

2. Given the specific positions held and/or targeted, it is far preferable to devise your own job marketing plan (with the support of the Career Booster and the Aerospace team). This approach is more authentic, and considerably more rewarding when the position is obtained.

How do you engage with employers?

  • Member of diverse Associations & Institutions (USAIRE, Aerospace Valley, IFCCI, etc): another good opportunity to share delegates’ profiles and to network
  • “Aeroperformance”: a resume book of all participants’ profiles, regularly sent to aerospace companies at professional events
  • Active participation at aerospace events: (Paris Airshow/Farnborough, ASD Days, Paris Space Week, Aeromart, AeroIndia…)
  • Strong social media presence
  • Partnerships with recruiting companies
