I met the Head of the ALU Disability Initiative Project when he visited the Mulhouse Rehabilitation Center on 15th February 2010. He suggested that our company get involved in the @talentEgal program and we very quickly established a partnership. The association allows us to work together on engineering training pathways and to offer our placement students the chance to pursue their studies within partner companies. Specifically, several interns studying to be IT and telecommunications network senior technicians have been able to pursue their studies at IUT in Vélizy. Others are in training with Telecom Bretagne. It’s rare for high-school students to have an exact idea of where they want their studies to go, much less their careers. Especially so when they are students with a disability. Only proper information, along with testimonies on study pathways and success stories about entering the job market can give them the desire to really pursue their further education. It’s the responsibility of colleges and universities to open themselves up to people with disabilities, but it’s also the responsibility of companies like ours to make these opportunities known. The association is seen as a real opportunity for finding, training and employing our interns.
