Internship Hiring or Renewal Process

General Steps For Hiring New Interns Or Contract Renewal

In Brazil, the hiring of interns tends to be very bureaucratic. The hiring model is governed by Internship Law No. 11.788, published in 2008, which establishes all the rules that must be followed:

  • The maximum workload must be 20 hours or 30 hours a week

  • The activities performed must mandatorily be related to the Intern's graduation course

  • The maximum duration of the internship contract is 2 years

  • The company must provide a professional to supervise the activities performed by the Intern

Note: the compensation package is standard for all interns according to the workload. To learn more about remuneration and benefits, contact the People Team.
