Jamk Talent Boost Newsletter 5/22

Jamk Talent Boost Newsletter  

Dear international student or graduate, greetings from Jamk Talent Boost!  

Talent Boost is a project aimed at improving the opportunities of Jamk’s international students in finding internships 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 course availability, and strengthen collaboration with businesses and organizations in Central Finland to raise the number of Jamk graduates that get employed in Central Region. 

Jamk Talent Boost Feedback Survey   

The project has been around for a year now. We would like to receive your feedback and suggestions about our current activities, past events and recommendations for future activities, services and what help would you like to receive from us. Please spend a bit of your time, 5 minutes or so, and help Talent Boost to improve. The anonymous survey is open until the 25th of September.
