  • Free use of the platform by creating a Professional Curriculum Vitae (which students can enrich over time and have it visible for hiring companies and institutions
    • Easy access to information on job opportunities / professional practices, courses or trainings from different companies and businesses
    • Direct application for jobs for members of the network
    • Easy creation of Curriculum Vitae which can be easily downloaded and used in different mediums.

POLIS University is a partner in this project, engaging in a process where graduate students have the opportunity to face numerous opportunities, not only in the professional university network but also more widely in the national market.
