“There’s no targeted audience. We are looking for talented, creative personalities, whether in the field of development, web design or graphic design. Why not with experience, Diploma Bac + 3 to Bac + 4. With nearly 6 months internship in the company, we want to raise skills of young entrepreneurs and creative minds and in a sustainable manner offer them jobs at EON Reality, both in Laval and on the international arena,” emphasized Yann Froger.
The IIA’s President, Benoit Grandemange stated “This opportunity concretizes the direction taken by the school from its inception: to work with local businesses. Being a partner of EON Reality is a great asset to our school. Our students will benefit from Virtual and Augmented Reality and they will participate and work in projects for large high-tech companies.”
