Career Management Program
The Career Management Program (CARM) is a dynamic meeting point for cultures and opportunities by offering counseling and dedicated services to MAFED participants.
Companies have access to:
- CV Book
We assist companies with their recruiting efforts by publishing a CV Book, which includes the CVs of MAFED participants. It is distributed directly to companies and is available on request from the CARM. This is a key tool for companies seeking high potential individuals, and contains all the characteristics of students as well as information on MAFED and the School.
- Company Days
During the final part of the MAFED program, CARM arranges opportunities for participants to meet companies. Company Days are the most important part of the recruitment process. The creation of personal connections while still enrolled in the program is fundamental for students and companies.
- Job Postings
The CARM gathers all job offers from companies and institutions interested in meeting participants.
Interviews are organized by CARM on demand for candidates. This facilitates the process, both for participants and for recruiting companies. During this phase, CARM advises its participants on the best ways to manage the selection process.
CARM initiatives are individually tailored to maximize each participant’s needs. The Career Management program supports MAFED students in developing personal skills in order to strengthen their profile.
Students are supported through:
Communication skills (self-presentation, interviewing, CV writing).
Individual efficacy (creative problem-solving, decision-making, teamwork and leadership).
- CV Book
Collection of student CVs and publication of the CV Book.
CV Book is sent to leading fashion and design companies.
- General Assistance
Analysis of student expectations and goals.
Individual meetings with students for career development (Career Coaching).
The program is developed throughout the year with targeted sessions, each supported by MAFED faculty or professionals in the field of human resource management. Some sessions are plenary with speakers or class exercises, other sessions are held on an individual basis.
