These services aim to provide personalised support to:

- Better identify your personal resources (motivations, interests, skills)
- Make plans for advancement (training, competitive exam, mobility etc.)
- Obtain information on INRAE’s available mobility schemes
- Consider changing positions, departments, careers
- Overcome a difficulty at work
- Receive help in looking for a job or internal/external mobility: strategy, CV, covering letter
- Take stock of your current job, career and prospects


Each individual situation is different. The objective will therefore always be to adive you "where" you are: more or less questions, a project in progress or not, a situation that needs to be discussed, solutions to imagine, relationships to build, contacts to make, etc.
