Career Services organises Think Career -events, workshops and info sessions. The themes of events are career and employment.

Boost to studies and career groups

Do you feel that your studies are not progressing as quickly as you would like? Have you lost sight of the goal of your studies? Do you have problems with time management? Do you need help in finding your strengths and recognising your skills? Do you need peer support? 

If you answered any of the above questions in the affirmative, Guidance Corner’s Boost to studies and career groups may be just the thing for you! The material in the groups is in Finnish and the work takes place in three languages (Finnish, Swedish and English) based on the needs of the participants, unless otherwise indicated in the clinic information.

Clinic themes (January and February 2020):

  • Smart goals
  • Find your skills
  • Goal in mind, shaky time management

You’ll find more information, dates and registration on Guidance Corner’s site.

Whether you are searching for a part time job during your studies or a job after your graduation, now is your chance to get the best tips from our Career Counselors for a successful job search! In this workshop, you will receive help in e.g. following questions: 

How to begin job searching? How do I write a good application and CV and stand out from other candidates? What kind of possibilities does social media offer for job search? How do I find jobs from the hidden job market? 

In the workshop, you will get the opportunity to read and comment on the other participants’ CVs in an encouraging environment. This in a unique opportunity to see other students’ career documents and receive constructive feedback on your own CV.
