Doing an internship during your studies makes it possible to acquire fundamental skills to start building your professional profile and face an increasingly competitive world of work.
The Career Service, in the person of the Personal Career Advisor, offers personal monitoring of the student from the preparation of the Curriculum to support in taking up internship opportunities in line with their employment ambitions.
The CV is the tool with which a person can tell their story: experiences, skills, course of study and interests.
Writing a CV well is the key to making a positive first impression and triggering a phone contact.
The Career Service, by appointment, will help the student to draft or revise their CV.
The portal makes it possible to browse the new job and internship proposals we receive and to apply easily and directly for all the opportunities posted by companies in our network.
The Career Service organises opportunities for students and graduates to meet with companies in the LIUC network:
- On Campus Recruiting: company presentations followed by get-to-know-you interview sessions (speed-interviews).
- Meet the company: explorations of company life to discover the most sought-after positions.
Once you have identified a company in which to do your internship, whether in Italy or abroad, just email your Personal Career Advisor or firstname.lastname@example.org with a request to open the administrative file, specifying the name of the company and the details of the company contact.
In cooperation with the company, the Career Service will draft the necessary documents for the internship to begin.
