PUC-Rio encourages the integration of students in the labor market, in the best possible condition. CCESP is the unit in charge of disseminating internship offers, trainee programs and jobs, as well as promoting activities to connect undergraduates with companies.
Annually, the PUC Exhibition (Mostra PUC) ̶̶ that is part of the calendar of events of the city of Rio de Janeiro ̶ brings dozens of large companies to the University to present their work in speeches, workshops, and stands set up in the ground floor area, during four days. It is an excellent opportunity for students to distribute their curricula vitae.
Currently, about 6.000 companies maintain agreements with PUC-Rio.
