Created in 1990, the USP and Careers Program aims to provide guidance, alongside family and teachers, about choosing a career path. The program offers to the students several opportunities to gather intelligence necessary to an informed choice from a range of majors among those existing at USP, thus allowing a decrease in the dropout rate at the University.
In addition to the periodically updated brochure, the program includes the Major Fairs and the scheduled visits by high school students and pre-entrance exam courses students to the 7 campi of the University of São Paulo.
The USP and Careers brochure presents USP and its many professional possibilities from a comprehensive point of view, providing an overview of the University. At the same time, the brochure assists the freshmen to develop an integrated relationship with the university community and society, taking advantage of the many academic, cultural and social activities that USP offers. Additionally, it indicates the teaching units, the majors offered and the actions to support students on each of the 7 campi, in addition to their integration bodies (specialized institutes and museums).

The Major Fairs, which are held annually, attract a large audience both in the capital and in the countryside. The USP Major Fair (FEPUSP), held since 2001, is an itinerant event that presents the undergraduate courses from USP campuses in Bauru, Lorena, Piracicaba, Pirssununga, São Carlos and Ribeirão Preto to students from the state’s countryside. The Major Fair from the campus in the capital, held in São Paulo since 2006, gathers all of the USP Teaching Units, as well as its museums and organs.
During monitored visits, teachers and students of the University expose their views on the majors and teaching units they belong to, presenting the different activities developed in them, such as extension courses, services provided to the community and promotion of cultural, scientific, technological and sporting events.
The program is also aimed at informing educators about all of the cultural and extension activities offered by the University, bringing them closer to its rich variety of museums, organizations and institutes.Thus, educators also provide information on the schedule of the activities at the USP museums and organ stands. A relaxed chat with some ofthe professionals who work there also takes place at the Major Fair.
