Boosting the professional integration of students
ISART Digital offers a renowned top-tier work-study program, allowing students to work at the heart of creative studios.
To guide students in their professional integration, the Career Services Department sets up a personalized support service with each student.
ISART's privileged links with industry players are an essential factor in facilitating this professional integration.
Mastering professional practices
The Careers Service guides students on their professional path.
They pass on good practices for working in a professional environment, and ensure that they have been taken on board over the course of lessons, workshops, personalised coaching and monitoring during work placements.
The quality of student’s professional behaviour is evaluated and leads to the grading of socio-professional skills. This grade counts towards admission into the next year of study or the eventual awarding of the degree.
At the end of the study program, students will know how to behave professionally and work autonomously to manage their career.
Students have several hours of class led by Career Services Representatives every month. The classes target various subjects: introducing the sectors of the industry, the different professions, the job market, social networks...
In small groups, Career Services Representatives explore topics seen in class in greater depth: résumé creation, role-playing the recruitment interview, or other pertinent themes (e.g. going to work abroad).
Students and Career Services Representatives meet to assess the student's individual professional objectives and their achievement.
All professional experience (internships, professional contracts, various assignments) is subject to rigorous monitoring. Reviews take place in the company with the student's internship supervisor to ensure that the professional integration process is running smoothly (i.e., student's activity, responsibilities, progress, etc.).
ISART student success
ISART values real world experience and offers a study rhythm that alternates theoretical courses in the classroom with hands-on work in companies.
