TRAINING PROGRAMS What is a training program ? They have nothing to do with internships and everything to do with real jobs ! Training programs are dedicated to graduates (with or without experience). They offer the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills through technical and managerial training. Participants usually carry out several projects in different functions, business areas or geographical regions of the company. At the end of the program, participants who performed well are offered a position in the company Think of it as a way to get on a career track within a company - Who are they for? Training programs are dedicated to graduates (with or without experience) that are looking for a career, not a job.
