In the first phase of the selection process, those interested in the campus tour must send an application form, with personal information and their academic and professional trajectory. This step must be completed by the stipulated deadline of 11 March.

Then, one hundred candidates will be invited to the second stage of the process, also done online. In this case, the phase consists of applying the VAST test, which assesses the candidate's behavioral profile and skills, and answering three questions.
