« I used the EPFL Alumni career services while I was looking for a job after a maternity leave. The interview has been extremely useful in order to define the kind of position I could target and how I could add value to my profile. A few months later, I have been hired as Project leader, a position I had as a medium-term objective, and was offered a continuing education. The EPFL Alumni career services have been extremely useful for my career guidance and negociation with my employer. »
