As a general rule, your career at Michelin begins in France. This lets you:

- familiarize yourself with the Group's organization
- acquire and develop a recognized skill in a profession

After 3-5 years in the company, you may be able to pursue your career in another country as part of your career plan, or to give you the opportunity to occupy a position you couldn't hold in France.

An expatriate has know-how, solid experience and considerable autonomy, which he or she is capable of passing on in the field. It takes 3-5 years to acquire these skills and qualities.

I'm not a French national. What are my career prospects within the Michelin Group?
At Michelin, we take in team members of all nationalities who can both contribute to the Group's development worldwide and enrich its cultural diversity.

If you are at the beginning of your career, you will begin by learning the ropes of your profession before moving on to growing responsibilities in France or in other Group countries.
If you are experienced, you will take a position with operational responsibilities in France or in other Group countries.
