BEST Inside View

A chance for the students to contact their future.

BEST Inside View is a job shadowing and mentoring event, in which a college student follows an engineer working in his/her area of personal interest for an entire day, closely observing their daily routine.
This event's goal is not only to help students understand what professional options are available for them but also the roles they may perform in the future: all this comes to strengthen the link between college students and the job market.
Through this iniciative, the student gets to understand a little better the way the company works: the working methods, their structure and organization. On the other hand, the visited company gets a bigger exposure to the academic community and a closer contact to the participants.

BEST Lisbon

One of the 13 founding members of BEST.

Our original goal was to give technology students the opportunity to engage internationally through an European students organization. Our dynamics allows us to be in frequent contact with students, universities and companies.
Our activity is developed for the benefit of technology students, and the responsiveness given by them encourages us to accept ambitious challenges and motivates us to innovate.
Because we are constantly evolving, we seek to grow with companies and universities in order to be able to develop projects that meet the interests of students.

About BIV 17/18

  • What I offer is a completely different view from the current one as regards the job possibilities associated to engineering courses; to show that there is still a reductive vision of what an engineer can do, when in reality you can see an endless amount of possibilities if you're not afraid to look through the window instead of the door lock.
  • I joined BEST two years ago and I became acquainted with BEST Inside View right away! I became responsible for all the logistics for the opening cerimony and networking session and it was truly enriching. The best part is that BEST Inside View is an event that is genuinely dedicated to students and their needs as future successful professionals. It is awesome to contribute and have that impact on students' academic path.
