Tell us about your studies at Excelia...
After studying at Law School, I decided to join Excelia's Master in Management programme. Year 1 is quite general, and I did my Cap Anglophone project in Dublin in a Vintage boutique. I then carried out my Humacité© project in Madagascar, working for an association called Ambato, which supports women and children in aspects such as nutrition and healthcare etc. During my second year, whilst on academic expatriation at ICHEC in Brussels, I decided to specialise in Human Resources. At the end of this period, I did a 2-month internship at Manpower, which gave me a first insight into the world of recruitment. I carried out my final year on a Work-study Track, working for the recruitment company Page Personnel.
Why did you choose this programme and this School
I chose this School for two reasons: its geographic location and the academic excellence of its programmes. In addition, studying here gives you the opportunity to progressively define your area of specialisation.
What’s your best memory?
There are so many... the student fairs where I was an ‘ambassador’ or even those sunny evenings spent on the ship France 1, a floating café-bar.
How did the experience of being part of a multicultural campus benefit you?
I have developed an open-mindedness that has helped to feed my curiosity and to improve my general knowledge
What made your years in La Rochelle so memorable?
My friends, whom I still see!

Tell us about your job...
As Senior Talent Recruiter, I have a portfolio of clients for whom I manage the recruitment process from A to Z. This consists of working with them to clearly identify their needs, to select potential candidates, to manage the interview process right up until the final selection, and lastly to ensure client follow-up. I’m in charge of 2 recruitment managers and, by providing them with the necessary support and training, I make sure they are operational and autonomous.
Does your job involve working with others?
My job is totally about others! My main task is to identify the recruitment needs of my clients and therefore, I have to find the perfect profile for the job position
Does it involve teamwork?
Teamwork is a must. My team is made up of 6 people within a department of 50, and I am directly responsible for 2 of them.
Of the lessons and experiences you had at the School, which ones are useful on a daily basis?
The lessons in Management and learning how to prioritise.
