The practice of the Assessment Center to prepare the futur 


The career pole of GEM organized a training workshop, interactive, designed and animated by Apostrof in order to sensitize its students to the practice of the Assessment Center. Indeed, most of the Management school curriculum are likely to realize an Assessment Center during their career. In the current delicate context of Covid, the intervention took place online but the students still got access to role play duos, as well as other fun stimulation exercices that are essential in order to experiment the procedure and its concerns.

“The workshop allowed our students to experiment multiples different role plays and train themself. The ones that participated particularly appreciated this role play and found it very useful. This workshop is a good opportunity and experience for our students to discover the Assessment Center!

With an overall satisfaction rate of 4.2/5 in 2022, 80% of respondents specified that they would recommend your workshop! This is very positive.”

Sabrina ROECKENS, International Career Advisor, GEM

“I really enjoyed learning about the evaluation criteria. I also appreciated the feedback from Virginie. It is interesting to have feedback on our own evaluation by a professional. Especially as she also gave us tips on how to handle certain moments differently. The workshop was an excellent evaluation session. I had a great time. I met new people and got to know myself better through students from different communities, which also helped me understand the perspective of different countries”.
Rishav VARSHNEY ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“It was a fun and very rewarding workshop. It helped me to understand what I need to do in a negotiation. This experience highlighted some flaws when I was facing multiple negotiation objectives. I discovered some criteria to evaluate the performance of others. I wish I had known more about this! It is always interesting and useful to know more about how to evaluate others”.
