Your career development
Selecting you implies our commitment regarding your career.
Our commitment doesn’t stop after providing you with quality training and delivering an internationally recognised European Bachelor diploma; we also and above all help and support you as you integrate the professional world
In this our approach is based on four imperatives that enable us to ensure an unequalled level of placement in our sector of activity.
A “skills assessment” is proposed by the Director of studies or an assistant to allow you to define your career objectives. We then swiftly implement whatever is required to facilitate your professional integration.
Together we shall build your professional project and offer internship possibilities that match your profile. In collaboration with the partner companies (link to the list of partners).
Throughout your time at ICI we shall provide the tools needed for your professional integration. Participation workshops covering interview techniques and writing a CV and motivation letter, coaching with interview and recruitment simulation.
The workshops are conducted in French by Lionel, and in English by Mahta, Head of the Foreign Languages department: Training / orientation / search / stress management / arguments / methodology.
Throughout the more than 30 years of its existence, the Institut de Conciergerie Internationale’s conception of what constitutes a successful teaching and training programme has not changed :
“Enable our students to express the best of themselves in their choice of profession”
Today the leaders in the luxury industry, hotels and hospitality, airlines, events organisation and services have realised that our training and teaching builds unique personalities capable of conveying the image of French service excellence.
This means your capacity to ensure that each of your clients enjoys a unique and memorable experience. A personal commitment to enhance the value of your company and your team. But above all, the sense of Service, the desire to please and the Concierge Spirit.
HOTELS AND HOSPITALITY
While we are proud of our hotel and hospitality origins which are our roots, it is clear that the opening up to new professions is becoming increasingly important
Of course, many of our students dream about integrating the Plaza Athénée, the Peninsula, the Bristol, the Shangri-la, the Ritz, the Meurice, Fouquet’s, Park Hyatt, Mandarin Oriental or the Airelles, K2 or Cheval Blanc in Courchevel or the Messardière, Terre Blanche, Eden Roc, the prestigious hotel on Cap Ferrat on the Côte d’Azur…
One thing needs to be noted; each year the job offers for our students are on the increase and we are finding it difficult to meet all these demands due to a lack of qualified candidates
Three trends are emerging for your future: Luxury, International, Event organisation
Whether VIP clientèle Manager, Client experience manager, Head of the Customer Relationship or Duty Manager, the leading players in the luxury industry are actively seeking profiles that have concierge know-how and, more especially, concierge social skills.
Your future clients are international: Asians, Russians, Americans, Arabs, South Americans, and Africans: your knowledge of the identity of each culture means you are a sought-after player to take up an international position.
Whether it is a festival, trade show, exhibition, evening gala or personal events, your know-how will enable you to integrate positions where the client experience dimension is essential
