  • Minimum requirements to participate: a PC, laptop or iPad / tablet with access to the Internet + your own headset with microphone;
  • If participating in Porto, Vigo or Trás-os-Montes & Alto Douro (Vila Real) Universities, you can also look for:
    • one of the “FINDE.U Virtual Rooms”, equipped with computers and Internet access,
    • the Auditoria from which the Programme is being streamed live.
  • Be selective regarding the workshops, info sessions and company presentations you will follow; choose those which are actually looking for your profile and skills, and meeting your expectations;
  • When approaching employers, even if online, a careful look & professional attitude is important, but also a good level of English and a positive and assertive attitude; also the demonstrated knowledge regarding the companies and their main projects will be a major plus. This is why you should document yourself as much as possible in advance.
