ENS and the ENS Young Generation offer career advice to young nuclear professionals

At ENC 2016 young nuclear professionals will have the opportunity to receive expert advice on career development in the European nuclear industry. ENS and the ENS Young Generation are organising, as a conference side-event, a career advisory service.

On Sunday 9 October 2016 Senior Professionals will be there to advise young nuclear professionals during one-on-one discussions on how to build a long and successful career in the nuclear industry. They will help identifying opportunities, maximize qualifications and talents, build experience and avoid the pitfalls that young nuclear professionals might encounter along the way.

The event will take place in the afternoon of Sunday 9 October 2015 in the ENC 2016 conference hotel, the Sofitel Warsaw Victoria. The event is open to all members of the ENS Young Generation Network1 as well as to all young professionals2 registered for ENC 2016.


Interested young professionals should send a CV and a short cover letter to careers@euronuclear.org. We recommend using the CV template provided below, but this is not mandatory. In all cases the applicant should indicate whether she/he is member of the ENS Young Generation Network and/or whether he/she is a registered delegate of ENC 2016.

The cover letter should indicate two issues which the young professional would like to discuss with the advisor. These indications will help preparing the one-on-one discussion between the advisor and the young professional.

The deadline for application is 29 July 2016.

Young professionals will be informed by 26 August 2016 whether they have been assigned an interview with a senior professional.
