  • video courses on preparing CVs and getting ready for job interviews.

Dottorato di ricerca (equivalent to a PhD)

For students in the Mechanical Engineering Doctoral programme, the Career Service and the PhD School offer a Placement programme for third year students who intend to work outside the University context. Through individual meetings with an Advisor from the Career Service and experts from the business sectors, PhD students can learn to make the most out of their own profiles and strengthen their communication skills in preparation for job interviews.
