Find your career – interactive career coaching online

The Career Services of Åbo Akademi University and the University of Turku offer our international students a career coaching opportunity - Find your career – in spring 2018.

The interactive 6 week online coaching (March 19 - May 11, 2018), for identifying career possibilities and giving valuable information on how to find a job in Finland and globally, will include a kick-off event on March 23 in Turku.

After the coaching students will have a better understanding of what employers’ value, where vacant positions can be found and how the labor market works. The career coaching will also help students identify their own possibilities, interests and skills. A completed program is awarded with a certificate.

Covered themes:

  • your interests and skills
  • employers expectations
  • CV's, cover letters and applications
  • finding a job/internship
  • contracts and labor market rules

The Find your career -coaching is coordinated by the universities’ career counselors, who have an active role during the online activities.
Registration for the program will be open from Jan 2 to March 15, 2018.

More information will be available on the Career Services’ webpage in January.
