How to get involved in the TBS alumni network

Some advice from Bénédicte Sanson, TBS MiM Class of 1990, Head of the Paris alumni branch and Vice President of our Association, to a graduate who asked him about possible involvement with us:

My first recommendation: Invest as much as you would like to take out!
Keeping your profile up to date, you are visible to alumni, recruiters and partners of TBS Alumni. You tell me that you will participate as much as you can in the activities of the Paris branch, thank you ... you have started on the right route.

Step 2: Make yourself visible. The TBS Alumni network is open to any form of participation. For example: you would like to meet professionals who could help you in your professional reorientation ... you can organize a workshop for alumni who share this need. This allows you to get in touch with high-level contacts and offers you access to 4,000 alumni present in the Ile-de-France area.
In September, the meeting at Bouclier de Bacchus* will be an opportunity to take stock of priorities and the organization of the new national office. All participants will have the opportunity to position themselves on projects or even propose action in the context of the presented objectives. I hope to have the pleasure of meeting you on this occasion.
Step 2 b: In order for this network to become truly effective it must have the means, even if only to continuously update over 30,000 profiles of TBS alumni for the directory (this is easy to do online through the website http://www.tbs-alumni.com ).

Thanks to your contribution, you benefit from the direct communication between members of the TBS Group, but also the advice of Laurence Masseron, head of Careers & Employment ( , Tel: +33 (0)5 61 29 46 93 ), for your career path.

From then on, the gates are open and you’re off!
Whilst waiting for the next Bouclier de Bacchus meeting, I urge you to join the TBS Alumni community on Viadeo, the Facebook page and to participate in the exchanges.
