In a 3,000 m2 hall, audiences can explore an immersive educational circuit that includes:
• a demonstration and discussion area coordinated by professionals who tell you about their current jobs and those of the future;
• a meeting area where you can talk to companies looking to recruit, as well as schools offering courses you can sign up for (with qualifications ranging from vocational training certificates to engineering diplomas).
This year, the Careers Plane is hosting 70 Exhibitors, industrial players and training schools/associations/operators, with a programme of talks, activities, HR events on jobs and training, visits for secondary and high school students and a large number of Official Delegations.
The aerospace sector is recruiting
The French aerospace sector represents some 195,000 jobs (the aerospace workforce in France involving members of GIFAS in 2018), and a total of over 350,000 jobs in France. The sector has demonstrated powerful dynamic energy over the past few years, and is looking to recruit around 15,000 new talents this year. It is still one of the sectors that takes on the largest number of young people, particularly through courses combined with work experience. There has been a considerable rise in these schemes, with nearly 7,300 young people on work-study contracts in early 2019 (up 7% compared with 2018).
