Advertise to students

Publication of jobs and internships for students in universities has been reformed! Two systems are now in use.

JobTeaser Service has been introduced in the University of Helsinki, Tampere University, University of Turku, University of Jyväskylä, University of Eastern Finland, Hanken School of Economics, Åbo Akademi University, Aalto University and LUT University. Valojobs Service is used by the University of Vaasa, University of Oulu and University of Lapland.

Both services allow recruiters to target their job advertisements to several universities in one go.

On the Advertise to students page, you’ll find more detailed information and instructions on using JobTeaser and Valojobs.

Jobs

As a rule, university services advertise jobs that require academic expertise and correspond to the fields of education the universities provide. The publication criteria are university-specific and depend on the fields of education provided and the regional employment situation and needs.

Internships

Does your organisation have a project or a report no one has time to work on? Hiring an intern could be your solution. By hiring an intern, your organisation gains the latest information in the field, new insights, and ideas for developing your processes. Interns can also help develop their degree programme by sharing their experiences of the realities of working life.

An intern can write reports, carry out surveys or perform other tasks that benefit your organisation, for example. The intern should have an opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge they have acquired in university to their internship duties. The internship should also be a learning experience for the student.

An internship is often the first step towards a longer employment relationship. Do not forget our international students, who provide both competence and exciting cultural diversity. A diverse and multi-cultural work community nourishes creativity.

Thorough planning benefits all parties. Universities have specific requirements for internships, because internships are part of degree programmes. Learn more:

Thesis collaboration

Hire a thesis employee to conduct more large-scale and longer-term reports and research. The thesis can be the start of a longer employment relationship or university collaboration.

Benefits of commissioning a thesis include:

  • access to the latest knowledge, which can be utilised in developing operations
  • an outside perspective
  • possible solutions based on research results
  • an enthusiastic and motivated worker for a project
  • university connections
  • an opportunity to get to know a potential new employee

Degree programmes have set requirements for theses regarding their form, scope and content. These requirements might not meet the wishes and needs of the employer. The student must make sure their thesis meets the academic requirements set for it. The student can be paid a salary, subsidy, expenses compensation or taxable reward for writing the commissioned thesis. he parties make an agreement on the compensation to be paid to the student. Different universities and fields of education may have different guidelines and practices regarding the compensation.

Universities’ terms and conditions for publication

Read the universities’ shared terms and conditions for publication. These terms and conditions apply to the JobTeaser and Valojobs services. The universities also have their own practices in addition to the ones listed below.

Publication terms and conditions (2020)

The employment services for university students are meant for job and internship advertisements and thesis subject advertisements that are suitable for university students or job-seekers with university qualifications. The work tasks offered must support the studies or future employment of the student or require academic qualifications.

  1. Based on their own publication terms and conditions, universities have the right to reject an advertisement submitted by an employer or remove a published advertisement at their discretion.
  2. The advertisement must clearly state whether the student will work under an employment contract or as an entrepreneur under a commission.
  3. The Aarresaari network and its partner universities are not responsible for the content of advertisements.
  4. Advertisements submitted by staffing service companies must include the name of the commissioner and a job description. Some universities do not publish anonymous advertisements.
  5. Universities wish that all internships are paid. Universities have the right to refrain from publishing an internship advertisement if the remuneration falls below the minimum wage level or if applying for an internship subsidy is not possible.
  6. All advertisements will be transferred to the selected universities immediately. The aim is to publish all advertisements within three (3) working days.
  7. If you notice an error in an advertisement you have already submitted or wish to edit the advertisement, correct your advertisement by logging in to your account or following the link you received by e-mail.
