Training and advice

If you haven’t yet, you should attend our various workshops and seminars. Each of them is proposed at least once per semester, in French and/or in English. You will find the list of upcoming training events for the current semester in our Memento.
PhD students close to completing their thesis or recently graduated are encouraged to attend our two-day course organised by the Staff Training Service called “Tackling the job market successfully.”
If you face problems while seeking work, you can also ask for an individual advisory meeting with a Career Center advisor.
