Find a specialist

You can find experts of all fields in universities – from technical sciences to humanities. The universities’ channels help you reach students and recently graduated bachelors, masters and doctors who are looking for suitable work, internships and opportunities for thesis collaboration.

There are more than 150,000 university students in Finland.


Cooperation with Universities

Universities cooperate with companies and organisations in many ways.  You can attend events, apply for mentoring programs, or be part of teaching.

Your partner in cooperation can also be Aarresaari-network.


Career Planning

The role of the career counsellors and career services of universities is to support the students in their own career planning processes during their studies and guide them towards things that are meaningful to them.

Internship
and Job Search

An internship completed during your studies is a good opportunity to gain work experience in your own field, as well as network in the field. By already beginning networking during studies, you can gain information about the operators in the field and possible work opportunities.

Graduates in Working Life

Universities collect information on graduates’ careers and academic labor markets through a career monitoring survey.
