How do I contact the association?
For any questions or further information, please contact Agnès de l’Epine and Sixtine Paulus:
What is the role of the mentor?
Support from a mentor is put in place as soon as students ask. With regular chats, students can build a strong relationship with their mentor for the duration of their studies.
There are several reasons for this:
– to develop their confidence: mentors advise and help students find their way in the professional world and help develop their ambitions. They help in case of any difficulties.
– to discover the business world: mentors share their experiences, imparting the rules of the business world and help them discover new careers.
– to share their professional network: mentors support students in finding an internship or apprenticeship and teach them how to build their own professional network.
What is the role of the CIDJ councilor?
The CIDJ (Center for Youth Information and Documentation) is an association that works to inform, advise and support young people, with or without disabilities, in terms of their questions about studying, careers, pathways, projects, and so on.
The CIDJ network includes some 1,500 organizations across France and Europe, which are supported by the state and local associations.
Through regular meetings, councilors can build a special relationship with students for the duration of their personalized support.
Depending on their wishes, this support can involve pursuing their studies, looking for a job and/or information about everyday things (like finding somewhere to live, understanding your rights, and so on), so as to give students access to their independence.
What is the role of the human resources adviser?
Like the mentors, HR advisers are involved at the student’s request. Their support, provided in a more general way, covers everything from your career plan, resume and application, whether you’re looking for an internship, an apprenticeship or a job. They can also help you with mock interviews. Human resources advisers share their experiences, as well as the rules of working within a company, helping you to prepare for the professional world.
