There are more than 150,000 university students in Finland. Through the recruitment channels of the Aarresaari network you can find experts in almost all fields of education – from technical sciences to the humanities. You can advertise jobs, internship opportunities and thesis work collaboration opportunities to current students and recently graduated bachelors, masters and doctors.

Advertise to students

Aarresaari network uses two separate recruitment services to advertise jobs, internship opportunities and thesis collaboration opportunities for university students.

JobTeaser Service is used 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.

These two services allow recruiters to target their messages to all university students in Finland and they’re both free of charge!

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

Jobs

As a rule, universities only advertise jobs and internship opportunities that require academic skills and correspond well to their fields of education. Publication criteria for seasonal work (summer jobs) are a bit more relaxed. Publication conditions can also vary based on the employment situation in the region.

You can find more information on these themes below:

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, you will have access to the latest scientific information, you get outsiders perspective to your operations and new ideas to help you grow your business.

An intern can write reports, carry out surveys and perform other tasks that benefit your organization. An intern should always have an opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge they have acquired during their studies to their internship duties. Internship should also be a learning experience for them.

Internship can also be 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.

A well-planned training period benefits all parties involved. Since internship is often part of studies, it has its own requirements.

Thesis collaboration

For more extensive and long-term research, you can look for a thesis worker to help you. Thesis collaboration can also be a start for a longer employment relationship and/or a starting point for closer cooperation with the university.

Benefits of thesis collaboration for the employer:

  • access to the latest scientific information
  • outsiders perspective
  • creative solutions based on research results
  • enthusiastic and motivated worker
  • connections to universities
  • an opportunity to get to know a potential new employee

Degree programmes have set requirements for thesis work regarding their form, scope, and content. These requirements might not meet all the wishes and needs of the employer, but students must make sure their thesis meets academic requirements.

The student can be paid a salary, a grant, expense compensation or taxable reward for writing the commissioned thesis. A written contract must be made. Different universities and fields of education may have different guidelines and practices for thesis collaboration.

Tips for writing an advertisement

The advertisement also serves as a showcase for your organisation. Allow enough time to write it and select an inspiring title that awakens interest.

Note the following, especially when advertising internship positions:
