Launch of the India-France Job Opportunities Board
The India-France Job Opportunities Board has just been launched on the occasion of the Indo-French Technology Summit (23-24 October 2013) in answer to a growing need to help Indian alumni having acquired a master or doctoral degree from France to find suitable placements.
The Board has emerged as the direct result of two important developments. First, a growing number of Indian students have been opting for a French "Grande Ecole" or university for pursing higher studies – or a part of their programme. Management and engineering are top choices. France is pleased to host 2600 Indian students today, which is a leap of 50% over the last five years.
Second, French companies have invested massively in India: the approximately 350 French companies present in India, with 400 subsidiaries, account for a total investment stock of $ 18 billion - which makes France one of the top investors in India.
Ambassador Richier decided to undertake a series of measures subsequent to these developments to further encourage both these steady, encouraging trends:
If you are an Indian student who has studied in France (master or doctoral level) or a French student who has completed part or whole of his/her education at the master or doctoral level in India, please fill the form below and also send a request to become a member of the India France Job Opportunities Board group on linkedin.
For this you will need to create a Linkedin profile and then ask for membership of the group mentioned above. Once your membership is approved you will have access to several job pots that are continually updated on this forum. Happy hunting!
