International student – Get a job before you graduate!

October 18, 2016

Event: Information seminar for international students graduating this year
Time: Thursday, 27 October 2016 / 2-4 pm
Venue: Arcada, Jan-Magnus Janssons plats 1, 00560 Helsinki

It is now common knowledge that international graduates in Finland face considerable challenges in finding employment after finishing their studies. There are different reasons for that, but sometimes it is simply a challenge of finding the right match between the skills of a potential employee and the needs of a future employer.

If you are serious about your career, it is worth to start acting now! In the project International Graduates to Work Life! all Universities of Applied Science in Helsinki Metropolitan area cooperate to increase employment possibilities for international graduates. We believe that students get best access to jobs by first demonstrating their knowledge, skills and competencies through direct contact with companies.

Come and learn about opportunities for cooperating with small- and medium-size companies (SMEs) who are interested in going international! You will have a chance to learn about the expectations and the needs of SMEs, and find ways to make your fist steps to a job while still studying at Arcada.

Interested? Consult a draft programme and register here before 24 October.


This event is organised as part of the project International Graduates to Work Life! Project contact persons at Arcada: Eija Källstöm/ eija.källströ and Milda Beišytė/
