Today, the luxury industry is a real source of employment. It is the dream of many students, who decide to train in schools specialized in this prestigious universe. Which companies recruit after training in a luxury school?
A wide choice of sectors
At the end of a training program in a luxury school, students have a wide range of choices to find their way. Depending on what they are looking for, they can either apply for a position in a major luxury goods company or move to a more human-sized structure such as a start-up.
In practice, the French luxury industry is characterized by a wide variety of sectors: it is renowned for its haute couture, cosmetics, oenology, hotels, jewelry, etc. For the student, it is therefore possible to consider working in an infinite number of different sectors, depending on the nature of his or her training and taste.
For example, a student with a passion for fashion could apply to LVMH: the French company currently employs over 125,000 people and is the world’s leading luxury goods company.
As for cosmetics lovers, they can consider a career with the Dior group, recognized as one of the international leaders in this market… It may also be interesting to apply for a job with Chanel, whose perfumes, skincare products and make-up are renowned throughout the world: the company recently decided to offer a 100% made in France production, which prompted it to relocate all of its manufacturing workshops on French territory!
On the leather goods side, the Hermès group is currently planning to open a new production unit in the near future. The company is already looking at different potential sites to set up shop, and is expected to create numerous jobs by 2023.

Among them are Richemont, based in Switzerland, Tiffany & Co, in the USA, and Prada, in Italy.
In order to enter the job market under the best conditions, many luxury school students today choose to do a work-study program, sometimes with an international dimension.
