Forum Perspectives is a yearly event organized by two major engineering schools of the Rhone-Alpes region in France: Ecole Centrale de Lyon and Ecole de Mines de Saint-Etienne. It’s the unique opportunity for 2000 students to meet recruiters face-to-face and to find internships and even their first job.
For the very first time, Forum Perspectives decided to offer its participants an event mobile app. Eventtia’s mobile technology allowed the organizing team to create a rich guide where students could find everything they needed to get the most out of the event: A catalogue with the companies descriptions, the type of jobs or internships offered, the recruitment contacts and the event floor plan. Students could plan and organize their visit beforehand by bookmarking their favorite companies and by adding to their agendas the conferences and round tables they wanted to attend. Students just loved it! We could see them walk around with their smartphones guiding them around.
It was a great experience both for the Forum and for Eventtia. It was an honor to partner with the students and deliver our first event mobile application in french. Students know now what a 2.0 school event is like and they have already confirmed their desire to continue working together in the future.
