"All right. But if I haven't graduated yet, how does that concern me?” 🤔
As a future graduate, now is the time to start building your network! Discover our tools and tips to build your network.
As a student, you can take advantage of many of the tools available and take your network into your own hands.
#1 The graduate directory📔
As with all KEDGE students and graduates, you have a personal profile in the KEDGE Alumni directory. From your profile, you can search in the directory where the 73,000 Kedgers are located.
But why are you telling me this?
- With the filters (locations, companies, sectors of activity, professions...) you can find graduates who work in a company you are interested in and even contact any Alumni working in their HR departments.
- This directory gives you access to the contact details of graduates (email and phone number), which is a definite advantage over Linkedin, which limits the number of contacts you can make.
Don't forget to update your data!
Provide as much information as possible in your profile so that graduates can identify and contact you. We know what you're going to say... the contact details in the directory on the KEDGE Alumni website are not always up to date. That’s true, but it’s not necessarily a problem! By combining this resource with the one offered by Linkedin, you can make miracles happen!
Not many people know this, but for a few years now, LinkedIn has offered a free directory of KEDGE graduates. Of course, the data on LinkedIn is more up-to-date, but the problem is that very often, the number of contacts you can make is limited, and email addresses are hidden... and that's where the KEDGE Alumni directory comes in.

#2 Events in France and abroad 🌍
More than 250 events (conferences, afterworks, company visits...) for Kedgers are organised every year all over the world so that you can build your first network. It's very likely that you will meet graduates at these events.
We also have branches in most countries of the world, which is very useful when building your first network when you move abroad.
Since the beginning of the global health crisis, all our events have been digitised. Visit the calendar to discover our online events (open to students)
#3 The My Job Glasses platform 🤝
- Why go to My Job Glasses as a student?
The main purpose is so that students can make the right choice of in terms of which direction to take (specialisations, internships, work experience, first job...). Mentors are "experienced advisors", experts who are graduates or volunteers to help "guide" you for a short period in the process of building your career plan.
- Why register on My Job Glasses as a graduate?
In order to provide students with the best possible guidance, the school has partnered with myjobglasses.com. To date, more than 1,500 graduates have joined this platform which provides mutual support between experts and students. As a KEDGE graduate, you can share your tips, advice, and expertise with our students via myjobglasses.com.
To put it simply, if you are a KEDGE student and would like to discuss your career with a professional in a sector or company that interests you, REGISTER NOW on MyJobGlasses and choose your Mentor from a list of previously registered graduates!
#4 The KEDGE Alumni Job Board💼
IMPORTANT: The professional experience required (mandatory internship) can be substituted by a fixed-term contract, a permanent contract, or a VIE.
Therefore, we recommend that you regularly consult the KEDGE Alumni Job Board!
- Discover thousands of permanent, fixed-term, or VIE offers
- Private job board restricted to Kedgers
- Log in with your Alumni profile and you'll have access to many exclusive offers
Don't forget: the KEDGE Alumni job board complements the JobTeaser job board, which mainly offers internship and work-study positions. Once you graduate, you will still have access to JobTeaser to post your offers and recruit among the Kedgers!
#5 Facebook and LinkedIn groups for graduates 💻

🎓 AND ONCE I GRADUATE, WHAT ELSE WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO?
This is when KEDGE Alumni will be most useful to you!
Graduates are the core activity of our association, with employability being the primary objective.
To meet that objective, we have designed a range of services for both recent and past graduates, ranging from mentoring to job placement. These range from mentoring, to coaching, to workshops for alumni...
Did you know, for example, that you are entitled to receive personalised support from a professional coach during the three years following your graduation? Five hours of coaching completely free of charge to help you get started in your career!
We have also written a "special" article for graduates, linked below, to explain everything in more detail.
