Former iMover's testimonials
Be inspired by iMove
“I am sill amazed of all the variety of missions that Sanofi has offered me in a relatively short-time and I am excited to pursue this adventure.”
My iMove experience as an HR Representative in Bridgewater, USA was a big jump both for my career and my personal life.
Being fully integrated to the local Human Resources team enabled me to discover the American ways of working, allowed me to learn by doing and taught me how to go out of my comfort zone. Since 2018, I have joined the Global Talent Acquisition Team, and having this immersion in another country and culture gave me some new perspective that I leverage in my everyday work.

“Sanofi gives me the opportunity to express myself and develop my potential on an intense fast track.”
Since my childhood, I dreamed of working abroad and especially in Latin America whose culture and history have always fascinated me. After graduating with a doctorate in pharmacy. I seized the opportunity that Sanofi offered me to live my first real professional experience abroad, in Mexico, where I am living since June 2018 an intense and rewarding personal experience. Being open-minded, having a positive attitude and a strong taste for new challenges are the best allies for the success of a VIE.

“Sanofi gives me the opportunity to reach my dreams both personal and professional!”
I always dreamed of living abroad, therefore having a step outside France and finding a VIE contract was always part of my professional aspiration. After graduating with a Master Degree in International Business, finding a position in a German speaking country was a thrilled move! I am now living in Austria since April 2018 and working at Sanofi, thanks to iMove.
I am really glad sharing my journey with fantastic colleagues and having a wonderful job! I dared and succeed in living my dream!

“I love mentoring talent at the start of their careers and watching them grow”
Our innovative iMove Global Work Abroad Program recently gave me the opportunity to work with Guillaume, a young man early in his career. The mentorship is for 2 years and I am very grateful for the experience. Having Guillaume in the room brought a lot of diverse ways of thinking to my leadership team in Europe, while also giving him the opportunity to learn and experience new things. It is very rewarding to contribute to his professional development by empowering him to make his mark on real Sanofi initiatives.
