Talent and Careers - Finding jobs

A swift and successful entry into the job market depends on the quality of education and the employability support services. U.Porto is in your corner, offering its students and graduates support every step of the way.

Preparation for the job market

From the beginning of their academic career, students at the University of Porto can participate in various initiatives and activities that prepare them for their professional future.

These include training provided by specialists, conferences, workshops on soft and hard skills, conversations with recruiters, advice on putting together a CV, and even defining a career plan.

U.Porto provides a platform for doctoral students – UP Doctoral Careers – where young researchers can access a large set of initiatives and resources to help them in the creation and design of their professional careers throughout life.

Job Search

The University of Porto boasts several structures and tools geared towards supporting students and graduates find employment in the job market.

One such tool is the Talent and Careers platform, where current and former students can upload their CV and gain access to job opportunities – some of them exclusively for U.Porto – shared by more than 1,500 businesses/organisations that participate in the Job Teaser network. Here it is also possible to access networking events and meetings to bring the academic community closer to the business and organisational world.

U.Porto’s faculties also publish job opportunities for their students and graduates.

Professional mentorship

There are also professional mentorship programmes that foster connections between current students and the job market. Mentors may be U.Porto alumni who come back to share experiences and to develop their current talents and skills. U.Porto lecturers, technicians and researchers may also be mentors, as well as business or organisation representatives.

By participating in these programmes, mentees are able to design their “personal map of experiences and skills”. They learn to arrange their life experiences in a way that adds value to professional experiences.

Recruitment at U.Porto

We are aware of how talented our students are, which is why we frequently open calls for applications to scholarships as well as recruitment offers for teaching staff, researchers and other professionals. You can find these opportunities on the webpages of the Faculties, Research Centres and the U.Porto news portal.

The Science and Technology Park of U.Porto (UPTEC) also has an online platform where it publishes employment and research grant opportunities offered by its businesses.
