Seize the opportunity of the iMove adventure to discover the world and boost your career!
Through iMove program, I had the change to live my first professional experience in two amazing countries: Croatia and Hungary. This adventure was a real opportunity to push me out of my comfort zone and to develop new ways of thinking and working. Getting these new perspectives was essential to grow, especially as a junior.
I am very grateful to all the colleagues who welcomed me into their teams and taught me so much. I am now enjoying a new Sanofi journey from Sweden!
Develop your potential and enrich yourself within a program full of opportunities!
Discovering a new culture and work environment is such a great experience! I had the opportunity to learn from ambitious colleagues in a dynamic industry. My journey has led to new responsibilities within Sanofi while continuing my adventure in Vietnam.
Face new challenges and develop your potential with the VIE program!
Working as a trainee in Sanofi, I heard about the VIE program and I was sure it would be the next step of my professional career. This journey made me face different exciting challenges that gave me the opportunity to develop my professional skills, discover new interests, grow personally. But this is only the beginning of this experience here in Germany, more is about to come!
Be inspired by iMove
“I am still 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.

“Keep on challenging yourself and enjoy the journey”
After my pharmacy studies, I wanted to have an international work experience. Thanks to the iMove work abroad program, I had the opportunity to work one year and a half with global medical affairs in the US which empowered me professionally as well as personally. This was an amazing experience with lots of growth in such a short period of time. Today, I am working for Sanofi Genzyme in France where I keep on challenging myself. Along with my colleagues, we collaborate with healthcare professionals to put forward innovative solutions to improve patients’ life. It is exciting and I embrace every new project or mission as part of my journey into the biotech world.

“The iMove program: an exciting journey to come our bolder & stronger”
During my master degree, I had the opportunity to study and work abroad (Spain, Vietnam, UK and Mexico). After having tasted these « overseas » experiences, it was a natural choice for me continue my journey aboard. I’ve joined Sanofi two years ago through the iMove program to work as a financial controller based in Bogota (Colombia). It has been an extraordinary learning journey where I felt pushed out of my comfort zone. I am enjoying every moment of my learning and development in Sanofi.

“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.
