IAS support scheme: an enhanced range of services

In order to complete its support scheme offer and to meet a growing demand from the participants of the IAS Annual Master Program, some members of the IAS teams have been working on the creation and implementation of new professional modules designed for the 2017–2018 class.

First of a series of five, a workshop called ‘how to optimize your internship research?’ has been implemented on the 13th of December. Its purpose was to provide guidance to help the Chinese, Malaysian, Mexican, Peruvian and Taiwanese trainees of the current class to find a work placement. The workshop was implemented in two steps: the first focused on key insights for an efficient action, and the second on discussing their approach in a more one-to-one basis. The session was welcomed with great enthusiasm, information in this regard will be provided to the GIFAS members.

The next workshops will address creating a good CV, preparing to a professional interview and presenting a thesis paper, starting in January 2018.
