Career planning workshops for international degree students 5.3., 12.3., 19.3. and 26.3.

The workshops aim to prepare you for the job application process in Finland and teaches you how to communicate effectively about your knowledge and skills. The workshops are primarily offered for the international degree students of the University of Tampere who intend to stay in Finland after earning their degrees (Master’s degree or PhD). The workshops are also open for other students, especially those who are looking for an internship placement. Finnish students may also take part if there are fewer than 15 international participants.

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 are all parts of a whole.
