Jamk Talent Boost Newsletter 2/22

Dear International Student/Graduate, greetings from the JAMK Talent Boost!  

Talent Boost is a new project that is aimed at improving the opportunities of JAMK’s international students in finding internship or employment in Central Finland. We are hoping to improve the awareness of International Students about the job market and provide extensive information on recruitment, improve Finnish language learning possibilities and strengthen collaboration with businesses and organizations of Central Finland to rise the number of JAMK graduates that get employed in Central Region.  The project is not only exclusive to JAMK, but also a part of the national program.

Next in our program for you: Instagram Live Stream 11.3.22 + Boost Your Finnish Experience Workshop (18.3.,25.3. & 1.4.2022 at 13.00 in R35_C113)
