The 1st and 2nd cycle career seminars, which are organised on a regular basis, offer you the opportunity to participate in a number of workshops: preparation for interviews, CV proofreading, speaking, image management, professional social network management, salary negotiations, etc.

    JOB FAIRS to help you find your path

    During the JOB FAIRS organised at the IPAG, you will be able to meet company professionals through talks around a variety of themes. Whether they are managers, consultants or entrepreneurs, they are there to share their experience with you. These JOB FAIRS help you to project yourself into the future and get a grasp of the professional opportunities that exist in each sector of activity. In short, they are intended to facilitate your choice of orientation.

    Regular meetings with recruiters

    All year round, you have the opportunity to meet many recruiters during IPAG Career Days held by the Career Center teams. These are all opportunities for you to meet companies seeking talented people. An internship in a start-up, a work-study program in a large group or your first job in a dynamic SME... Each year, many students are recruited after an initial contact established during this type of event.

    A strong alumni community

    Our network now brings together nearly 14 000 alumni around the world. It is animated by a dedicated Alumni Department within  the school and can play a decisive role in your career. As soon as you join the school, you become part of the IPAG Alumni social network and access the precious directory of ipagians. Once you graduate, IPAG supports you throughout your career and regularly offers the opportunity to participate in workshops or sessions with professional coaches.

    • You acquire a solid corporate culture
    • You put into practice the theoretical lessons learned at IPAG
    • A part of your tuition costs is borne by the host company
    • The salary is higher than if you were an intern
    • You benefit from the status of employee
    • Work-study often leads to a job

    Internships every year

    To help you develop your professional plans and acquire real experience in a company, IPAG allows you to complete an internship every year, in France and abroad. These multiple experiences, each lasting from one to six months, are a real bonus on your resume and a guarantee that you will be operational and fully employable at the end of your course.

    Our apprenticeship programmes:

    • Bachelor Pro BTS's degree course

    On the Nice campus, the first two years of our Bachelor degree, dedicated to the preparation for the BTS exam, can be taught as a work-study programme (all specialisations included).

    • Grande Ecole Programme

    Both in Paris and in Nice, the entire master's cycle can be completed as an apprentice.

    There are two types of contracts:

    • A contract called "professionalisation", with remuneration up to 80% of the minimum wage (taxable).
    • A contract called "apprentissage", along with compensation of 53 or 61% of the SMIC (non-taxable).
