About Career Monitoring
The national network of academic career services (Aarresaari) has been conducting graduate surveys and collecting career monitoring data at Finnish universities for ten years. Surveys are targeted at Master's degree graduates five years and PhD graduates three years after graduation. The objective of the monitoring is to provide data on the quality of academic employment and the equivalence of the skills provided in academic education to the needs of tomorrow's working life. The results are used in teaching and guidance work as well as in the decision making and planning of academic education.
