Looking to the future

Don’t wait until the last minute

It is never too early to start thinking about entering the world of work and what you will need at that stage. You don’t have to wait until you are a last-year student/graduate. The sooner you start, the more opportunities you will have to increase your potential and use it effectively.

Your studies, experiences, interests, aptitudes and the competences you acquire, all contribute to creating your personal and professional profile, with which you can aim for a specific career.

Programmes and services offered by the University 

The University of Bologna supports you, starting from when you are a student, during the University-World of Work transition, offering you services, courses and activities that provide tools that help you prepare to enter in the world of work.

Soft skills

Soft skill courses, which you can take during your studies, provide you with knowledge and skills that will come in handy when you will have to put your competences into practice, to meet the organizational needs of a working environment.  

These abilities and competences, known as soft skills, integrate specific competences and knowledge and are increasingly more sought after by Human Resources.
