Students in Monaco have met professionals during Information Day in order to get to know more about careers in which they are interested.

Organised by the Commission for the Integration of Graduates, in collaboration with by the Department of Education, Youth and Sport, the event took place at the Rainier III Auditorium, with a dozen different professionals represented.

An afternoon of professional discovery allowed the students of the Terminale, BTS and DCG classes to learn more about the major employment sectors of the Principality.

The objective is to help high school students to choose a future orientation in connection with job-creating sectors in Monaco and to better identify the link between work in the lycée and a later course of training.

After an introduction by Mr Stéphane Valéri, Minister for Social Affairs and Health, and Mr Patrice Cellario, Minister of the Interior, as well as Mrs Isabelle Bonnal, Director of National Education, Youth and Sports, fourteen professionals spoke in front of more than five hundred young students of the Principality. In particular, they presented information about careers in IT and new technologies, hospitality, yachting, careers in the financial sector, and public accounting and health.
