My tip for anyone who wants to be a Young Apprentice at Vale is: study the company and be persistent. I was very insecure about myself, I thought I wouldn’t be able to succeed because the competition is very strong but it’s possible, you have to believe in your potential. Vale values you and wants you to improve and grow personally and professionally.

How does our selection process work?

The Young Apprentice Program’s selection process is completely blind at all stages, with the aim of preventing unconscious biases from influencing the choice of candidates. Our focus is to promote a selection based on the assessment of potential and ability to perform in the future. Thus, information such as gender, ethnicity, marital status, disabilities, among others, are omitted during selection.

Steps of the selection process:

  • Online registrations and assessments
  • Online group dynamics
  • Virtual panel with managers
  • Admission medical exams
  • Disclosure of Results
