Students receive continuous and supportive follow-up from the career development offices of their respective Academic Units, with initiatives promoting interactions between students and companies, including job fairs, employability workshops, on campus company events, summer internships, among others.

In addition to the support of career offices, the Alumni and Mentoring Programs contribute towards learning about the professional world, thereby streamlining inclusion in the labor market.
