First of all, we recommend you to attend the Técnico Career Sessions, organized by the Núcleo de Parcerias Empresariais, intended for all the Master Degree students, which are information sessions about the Career Discovery@Técnico programme and the recruitment processes.
Then, you can apply for the Técnico Career Scholarships to get a scholarship to participate on the Técnico Career Workshops. Each scholarship include 2 workshops. The workshops prepare yourself for the recruitment process.
There are many opportunities to contact with companies in both Técnico campus (Alameda e Taguspark), once more than a hundred of companies visit Técnico every year. Given that, you should join the Técnico Career Weeks to meet potential employers. You can also attend the Jobshop@Técnico, which is organized by AEIST.
There are opportunities to get to know and talk with Técnico Alumni about their successful careers, in the Alumni Talks@Técnico, which is an event organized by NAPE. Participate in the Pitch Bootcamp@Técnico that is a two-day skills acceleration programme that brings together the brightest students and some of the most competitive companies.
These are some reasons why you should be attentive about the Técnico calendar!
Another way of meeting companies is through the Técnico Summer Internships, which is an excellent opportunity to acquire valuable experiences and get to know a little better the job market. You can search for these opportunities on Técnico Job Bank or through the student organization of your course.
If you would like to visit a company and follow a worker on your field of study during a regular working day, you should apply for Inside View@Técnico, organized by BEST Lisboa.
To leave a lasting impression on your potential employer, Técnico offers to its students 100 Técnico Business Cards.
To answer all these questions, you should join the Career Discovery@Técnico activities and any other recruitment activities organized by Técnico.
More than great academic achievement, the companies that recruit in IST value the amount of experiences and competences you can develop in Técnico through an active participation in the student organisations [add link]. Get in contact with them and discover how you can join them.
