The main objective of the present study is to present a proposal for an observatory based on the impact of Curricular internships in business organizations, internships in higher education, with the overall goal to provide a better understanding of the transition process of students from higher education to the labour market.

The present work presents a research on a current problem. Designing the process of transition to working life as the construction and implementation of a single and large life project, more or less linear, is not congruent with the current rapid reconfiguration of professions. Academic training does not constitute an accurate predictor in the construction of the next professional incarnations, nor does it allow one to assume the future levels of professional competence of higher education graduates. The relationships between teaching and the subsequent insertion in the professional world, configures two nuclear aspects: on the one hand, the training provided, and on the other, the impact on the professional activities to be performed.

The results obtained with this Observatory will widen the analysis of its effectiveness in terms of future research and actions in regard to the transition of Higher Education pathways to the Labour Market.
