O que esperar do nosso programa LED?

Work on large international jobs.

We believe the best way to learn is through doing. Trainees actively participate in projects in North America, South America, and Europe with support from the project team and their department.

Keep growing.

We aren’t just looking for candidates with a solid technical background: your ability and enthusiasm to learn and evolve is just as important. Deepen your understanding of your discipline or learn something new through professional development and cross-discipline teamwork.

Growth potential.

You might become a technical expert, team leader, or project manager within your technical discipline. Or your skills and interests might lead to you a new discipline or a new department. We’re growing rapidly and that means you can, too!

Flexible structure.

The first half of our program provides a pre-defined path while the second offers room for customization. During this second phase, you might take a deeper dive into your discipline or try something new, depending on company needs and personal preference. 

O que os nossos LEDs pensam sobre o programa?


Paola Bassam, Class of 2020

Hometown: Jaboticabal-SP
DG Office: São Paulo

"I was able to work on a project from the very beginning and go onsite during construction. Being able to see plans come to life has given me an excellent overview of the timeline, and exposed me to different topics."


Mayron Sardou, Class of 2017

Hometown: Nova Friburgo-RJ
DG Office: Salt Lake City, UT, USA

"I rotated within different engineering departments and  also had the opportunity of being part of the construction management group, installing a food processing system. The company is more informal than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise."


Bruna Mingotti, Class of 2019

Hometown: Jundiaí-SP
DG Office: São Paulo

"This is a very challenging, yet rewarding program. The best part about working at Dennis Group is that your job never gets boring. There are different projects, and you learn something different on each new one you work on."


Walter Soares, Class of 2019

Hometown: Fortaleza-CE
DG Office: Springfield, MA, USA

"At Dennis Group I learned that proactively taking responsibility and being open to learn are a recipe for success. During my LED year, I was able to participate in four different projects with a level of responsibility that allowed me to add value to clients."


Letícia Oka, Class of 2018

Hometown: Goiânia-GO
DG Office: São Paulo

"This is a program for self-starters. I learned that Dennis Group's culture fits well with people who are proactive, who are willing to embrace challenges, and pursue opportunities to develop their careers."


Rodrigo Rocha, Class of 2019

Hometown: Rio de Janeiro-RJ
DG Office: São Paulo

"I would say it is a great opportunity to work with real hands-on engineering and meet very smart people. You have to be flexible and ready to travel.  One day you can be in São Paulo and the next day be sent to the US for three months."
