                Human Ressources Support, ATOS Group

                I joined Paris School of Business following previous studies in Sciences. For the fourth year here at PSB, I opted for the HR & Digital Transformation specialization. The training program was very enriching, both professionally and personally speaking, providing me with a global perspective on the corporate world, an understanding of managerial challenges, and a clearer view of what to expect from the working world.

                I am now working in HR Support for the ATOS Group in work-study mode. My path through Paris School of Business has helped me understand the corporate world and its different hierarchical levels, meet and dialogue with professionals, and gain a clear view of my own operational ability.
