Discover Speed Jobbing

A unique opportunity for the professional integration of newcomers.
Speed Jobbing recently marked a significant milestone in the SAE program at the Maisonnée. This initiative brought together more than 200 enthusiastic participants and four leading companies in a series of lightning talks.
Inspired by the concept of "speed dating", Speed Jobbing offers a unique opportunity for job seekers to meet several employers in record time, generally a few minutes per interview. Designed specifically to allow candidates to briefly present their skills and experience, while allowing employers to quickly discover the candidates' potential. It’s an effective and direct way to remove potential barriers, foster professional connections and create employment opportunities.

Preparatory Workshop:

In anticipation of Speed Jobbing, we offered an exclusive workshop to prepare candidates. This bilingual workshop, offered in French and English, was designed to be more than just preparation – it was about the art of creating an impactful Elevator Pitch.
