The employment rates for our graduates are high. A big percentage of them find a job related to their educational background in a short period of time. Our students even join the workforce before finishing their degrees, mainly with internships related to their education.
The public sector has been the traditional main area of employment . The main organizations that offer public contracts are universities, councils and Ministries. However, in the last few years more and more graduates find a job in companies in the private sector.
The university service for guidance and professional career planning (Servicio de Orientación y Planificación Profesional, SOPP) publishes an annual report about professional integration of UC3M graduates and LIS students have a big presence. There is a high level of satisfaction of undergraduates related to the usefulness of their college education in getting a job.
