The alumna in charge of our career resources and services is
Isabelle Langlois Loris (Solvay Schools Alumni 1990), Partner at
Egon Zehnder International.
The objective of the career services team is to help alumni in
managing their professional career to reach their professional
objectives. Our ambition is to help those considering a career
move, but also to help all who are interested to work on their
employability and ultimately to improve the leadership and
managerial skills of those interested.
The team is made of Solvay alumni who are active in the human
resources field, either as professional recruiter ("headhunters")
or as HR manager in a company.
Our initial efforts have been focused on career moves, with the
job sessionswhich have now been running for a while with increasing
success. The objective of those sessions is to help alumni realise
the change of career they aspire to.Those sessions cover in a
participative way the essential topics of how to prepare an
attractive resume and how to prepare for an effective interview,
while more specific challenges faced to successfully make a career
move are covered on a more personal basis in one-to-one
session. A group of professional
recruiters share their experiences on the topics and
provide advice and guidance to the participants. The evening start
with a short presentation on the do's and don'ts of an
attractive resume that catches the reader's attention, followed by
an overview on how to best get prepared for an effective
interview. After a small Q&A session, each participant
has an individual face-to-face discussion with one of the members
of the Career Services team to discuss any specific questions
regarding their resume, career, aspirations... In order to
provide dedicated attention to each participant, the
groups are limited to 15 participants. Those
sessions are free of charge but exclusively open to our
members who have paid their membership fee.
Further more, we have covered the main questions on one's mind
when looking for a new professional challenge in various articles
which are to be found in the "Practical Tools" section. These give
advices on the cv, the interview, the use of the network, what to
do when out of a job... Other interesting articles related to
managing one's professional career will complete this section as we
