X-Forum is an opportunity for companies to :
> Meet with Polytechnicians as well as École Polytechnique Masters and PhD students. As the event is open to the public, it is also an opportunity to meet students from other engineering and business schools attending the Forum (Ensta Paris Tech, ESPCI, Institut d’Optique, HEC etc).
> Hand-pick the student profiles which best correspond to their current needs and the positions available.
> Promote careers and internships, as well as guide Polytechnician students in choosing their areas of specialization.
> Improve their visibility among the Polytechnician community.
> Present their activities and career opportunities to visitors from the top French engineering schools and universities.
Additional X-Forum services include :
> Simulated job interviews which give companies personal contact with individual students.
> A “Breakfast Encounters” service which provides an occasion for companies to become more fully acquainted with about 15 students at a time, and to better present their activities and career opportunities.
> A special “Innovation Area”: A panorama of technological innovation in its various forms is put on display for students. Start-up creators are invited to participate and describe their journey and how they went about developing their company. This meeting space welcomes representatives from start-ups as well as research laboratories and R&D departments of major companies.
> A space reserved for SMEs: X-Forum provides important visibility for small and medium businesses, as students are increasingly drawn to innovative SMEs who are seeking to recruit new graduates.
