What's the daily number of visitors of your websites ?
Combined, all our websites are visited by more than 300 000 persons every day.
It is complicated to know how many visitors each website receive:
- In most cases, a visitor goes from one website to another. This visitor should be attributed to one of those websites in particular and we don't have this particuliar option.
- If we multiply the number of visitors by the number of visits of each website, we would obtain gigantics figures that wouldn't quite represent reality.
How many CVs do you have in your databases ?
Finding one CV among millions of CVs would be like looking for a needle in a haystack. That is why we favour quality and constancy rather than quantity.
Our different databases include:

Can I post several internship offers with the Internship Pack ?
In order that your offers may be connected to your customer account, you need to:.
Fill in a new form of internship posting from the homepage of the website.
Enter the same elements as in the order form of the Internship Pack in the following fields: first and last name, name of the company, e-mail address..
If you do not follow these instructions, your post will not be attached to your Internship Pack and you will not be able to access the complete CVs of applicants to your offers.
I have found an anonymous CV on the website andI have a customer account. How can I access the complete CV?
You have to note the code of the CV (random alphanumeric code).
Copy and paste the code in the "Keywords" field of the search engine from your customer account, and click on "Search".
If you printed the CV and can not copy and paste the code, only enter the 5 or 6 firts characters of the code in the "Keywords" field, and click on "Search".
The search engine will automatically find the CV.
If your search shows no result, it means that the CV has been removed in the meantime.
Does the Internship Pack give access to all complete CVs of internship seekers?
When you order an Internship Pack, you can access to all complete CVs of internship seekers in our database as well as the complete CVs of applicants to your internship offers during the whole period of your Pack.
What does the Internship Pack provide that only posting an offer doesn’t?
The Internship Pack allows you to access the contact details of candidates : the one who applied to your offers as well as the one in our CV library of internship seekers.
The posting of internship offers is free but has to remain anonymous so the Internship Pack is the only way to get in touch with applicants.
I saw a post on a search engine but I can not find it again on your website. Why?
Our websites are constantly updated by users, offerers, seekers, and ourselves.
The main search engines save or update close to 100,000 pages a day.
The various search engines permanently store hundreds of millions of pages from our websites.
When a post is removed from our websites, it may not immediately be taken into account by search engines.
That is why it still appears on search engines but not on our websites anymore.
Ed. note: We acknowledge the efficiency of most search engines which need 4 to 72 hours to detect changes saved on our websites.
How can I optimize the referencing of my offer on the websites?
We highly advise you to optimize the referencing of ad post on our websites.
To do so, there are 3 essential elements to take into account: the number of keywords, the relevance of keywords, and the updating of your post.
- Increase the number of keywords: the form contains several fields allowing you to describe the job to fill, and gives you the possibility to put a title on your offer. Use these different fields to enter various keywords (try to think about the vocabulary the job seeker may use when searching job offers).
- Use appropriate keywords: try to use relevant and precise keywords, and avoid using abbreviations and acronyms. For example, use “Human resources” rather than “HR” which is not relevant enough, as it can be contained in several other acronyms; be as precise as possible. Besides, do not enter what you are not looking for, as it will appear in the field as a keyword and be taken into account in search engines.
- Update your post on a regular basis: every time you update your post, it will figure again among the 10 most recent offers and new email alerts are sent to the job seekers of our database. We recommend you to update your post once a week.
All posts on the websites’ homepages, the lists of applicants and the results of search engines are presented by chronological order, with the most recent ones (or updated most recently) appearing first.
