1. Do you collaborate with technical and professional institutes?
Yes, we have actually set up a convention with these Institutes which provides for guided tours of our company, the assignment of projects and the carrying out of internships. Every year our company accommodates a high number of students so that they can integrate the theory they have studied with practical experience. We offer our interns the possibility of working within our operating areas under the guidance of internal tutors. If you are interested, ask about this at your college or contact us. See the internship offers.
2. Is there the possibility for undergraduates who intend to graduate/qualify to carry out an internship with you? Yes, we believe that this is an opportunity to enter into the reality of the world of work. We regularly welcome school-leavers/graduates and suggest interesting arguments to them for their theses. We place our premises at their disposal and offer constant support. If you are interested in our proposals send us an application, otherwise send us your research project. It is interesting to know that this initiative has led to the employment of many students. See the internship offers.
3. Is it possible to carry out an apprenticeship with you following graduation?
Yes. We also operate by means of conventions with the Universities to allow recent graduates/engineers to carry out work experience which is valid and in conformity with requirements.

It is not easy to define them since the individual characteristics sought after vary (sometimes even substantially) from position to position. First of all, we prefer to place young people (this is our main prerogative in the selection process).
Independently of the position to be filled, in each collaborator, we also look for:
- honesty (upright, well-balanced people who are transparent in their attitudes both with regards to internal and external relations);
- motivation (willingness to put oneself to the test and constantly improve, people who believe in what we believe in);
- ambition (we prefer candidates with high expectations rather than those who tend to be satisfied with what they already have);
- flexibility (in terms of duties, hours, objectives);
- entrepreneurial spirit (every collaborator must consider themselves an entrepreneur in their field);
- knowledge of foreign languages (in particular English and Spanish).
Candidates who present for interview in a docile manner, those who do not believe in their abilities/qualities and above all those who do not know how to set themselves medium to long-term objectives are not well received.
16. In the event that an interview does not have a positive outcome do you inform the interviewees? Yes, always. In the event of a negative outcome the personal details obtained are inserted and kept in Fosber database.
