The matching student / receptive structure is made according to the capacity of the boy and the level of the company in a proportional way, the best in companies of the highest level and the least good in the mid-level ones.

Many of them are hired by the same company in which they do the internship, the past years have also achieved success rates of 90-99%: at the moment the students have grown in number and the companies decreased for which it is no longer possible to have these results .
