IEEE Young Professionals (YP) Portugal launched a new project/program named as Young Professionals Internships (YPi). With YPi the YP Portugal aims to create a strong link between companies and Student Branches, in order to promote the integration of Academia students in Industrial environment, give to students an early contact with the labor market and enable companies to identify future employees.
“In the current social-economics context, where the young unemployment rate keeps breaking new records every day, the secret to succeed is often to adopt a good strategy when applying to a new job. With this in mind, YPi is a great way for students and Young Professionals gain experience, have their first contact with the business world and interact with new technologies and paradigms” said Miguel Marques, Chair of YP Portugal.
YP Portugal will provide to Students and Young Professionals many opportunities of “including programs”, providing all the means and tools to ensure the students’ integration in a “first job”.
According to the Operations Director Teresa Carreiro of Critical Manufacturing, “This program is an excellent opportunity for students to complement the academy instruction, integrating them in real industrial environment and giving them the opportunity to cooperate directly with ambitious projects. For the company, the ability to cooperate with IEEE and the access to motivated Students and Young Professionals gives us a competitive advantage over traditional internship programs that we already had in the past”.
The first participants are now applying to the available programs and will be integrated in the companies in July of the current year.
