After graduation

Career guidance (postgraduate) is a service aimed at guiding graduating students and graduates towards the world of work, through various activities and initiatives.

The career guidance service is mainly carried out by the degree course staff and the Academic and Career Guidance Division.

More specifically:

  • the Degree Course, through its delegate, organises and publicises meetings with representatives of the world of work (e.g. professionals, civil servants, entrepreneurs, etc.) in order to illustrate to students the characteristics of the individual activities and the challenges that graduates will have to face at the end of their university education
  • the Academic and Career Guidance Division organises a series of orientation interventions to accompany those who are about to finish or have already finished a university course towards the world of work, favouring the improvement of soft skills and knowledge of professional profiles and related opportunities.

Other services offered by the University are:

  • job vacancies notice board, where all the job offers from companies, institutions and organisations registered in various capacities on the AlmaLaurea portal are collected;
  • job opportunities, publication of opportunities for students and graduating students;
  • Job day, an annual event aimed at fostering direct relations between companies and graduating students/graduates of the University of Parma;
  • seminars and meetings on how to draw up a curriculum vitae and a cover letter, how to successfully face a job interview (individual and group interview simulations), etc.;
  • internships (or traineeships) for orientation, reserved for graduates within twelve months of obtaining their academic degree.

In addition, ER.GO. also provides various support services for recent graduates on its Job Orientation page.
