Work and entrepreneurship
The completion of academic studies usually marks the beginning of a new stage: the entry into the labour market. In this way, and to facilitate the transition process, IPC invests on a series of services to support employment and the creation of self-employment.
The Portal de Emprego (Career Portal) of the Polytechnic of Coimbra allows students and ex-students to access to career opportunities in all the countries belonging to the international network "Trabalhando" - a community of websites present in 11 Latin American countries, which offers over 200 thousand monthly job opportunities. By accessing the portal, only available for students and former students of the institution, companies obtain facilitated direct contact with graduates and former graduates, since they can autonomously publish job adds on this platform.
Also regarding employability, the Polytechnic of Coimbra comprises a support service to career opportunities integrated in INOPOL - Academy of Entrepreneurship.
