Many students look for master´s degree or begin their professional race once they finish their bachelor degree.
Universities have a professional “career services” department that offers a wide variety of services to support and help students and alumni of the university in their incorporation into the labor market.
A counselor is the person at the “career services” office that helps students to choose a career, whether the student does not know what he wants to do or has not decided on a specific occupation.

Students will also be able to access a database of alumni who are willing to share their work experience with the current students.
