Career Planning Workshop for International Degree Students 26.4., 17.5., 22.5. and 23.5.2017

The Career Planning Workshop will prepare you for the job application process in general as well as specifically in Finland. In four sessions we go through all the steps needed and you learn to communicate effectively about your knowledge and skills. These workshops are offered for the international degree students of the University of Tampere who intend to stay in Finland after finishing their degrees (Master`s degree or PhD).

The workshops are highly interactive and also designed to get to know yourself better. Participants are recommended to take part in all four sessions, because they form 4 parts of a whole.
