FAQ

How can I submit my resume?

To submit your resume, click here. By doing so, you will be able to compete for vacancies at Vale. If you would like to participate in one of Vale’s programs, apply on the page of the program in question.

How will I find out if I have been chosen for a position?

Candidates themselves should monitor the process. To do so, visit the page of the program you have applied for and click on the “Track the Process” link. As soon as Vale has a response, it will appear in each candidate’s record.

I’m in the Talent Bank. What do I do now?

If you are in the Talent Bank, it is because you did well in the selection process stages for a Vale program, but it wasn’t possible to offer you a position at that time. If a vacancy that matches your profile appears during a new process, you may be informed, and you can continue from where you left off before. However, the fact that you are in the Talent Bank does not guarantee you will be called upon again. Only candidates with the right profile for new vacancies will be called upon.

I was in the Talent Bank in the past. Do I need to reapply for the next selection process?

If you have already participated in a selection process for Vale, you don’t need to reapply, as your resume is already in the Talent Bank. If a vacancy that matches your profile arises, we will contact you, and you can continue in the selection process from the point where you stopped the last time. It is also possible that you may have to redo some stage of the selection process.
