As explained above the requirements for the program are as follows:

- CV Checkpoint (mandatory to upload their CV on VMOCK within the deadline and reach a minimum score of 60 points).
- Career Sessions (mandatory attendance in 1 Career Session enrolled in Bidding).

- Career Fair (mandatory attendance in at least 2 activities).
- Complete your CV and upload it onto Nova SBE Career Center by Job Teaser profile. If you prefer, you can send it to the Career Services e-mail.

Failing the above requirements implies failing the Course.
All sections must be completed during the Spring Semester 2019/2020, by May 30th.
We will not accept permutes between sessions and we will only accept justified absences (each case will be individually evaluated). If a student does not attend they will fail and will have to complete the Career Session at the following semestres.

Subject matter

In order to pass Mastering Your Career you need to complete seven mandatory sections: Discovery Week, Questionnaire, CV Checkpoint, Career Sessions, Career Events, Career Fair and Curriculum Vitae. You will need to fulfill the requirements within each section in order to pass the course and receive the 2 ECTS. None of these sections is worth any ECTS on its own.

Aside from this mandatory component, the Career Services team has also outlined some activities and resources that we strongly recommend you to take the most of: you can book a counseling session with one of the Career Counselors available, join Business Challenges, register for Mentoring Program and participate at the Spring Career Fair.
