The major challenge that international students face in finding employment in Finland is that they are often unaware of the unique features of the Finnish labour market and the expectations that employers have of students looking for a job. Unipoli Tampere tackles this challenge by offering a series of informative lectures to give students instructions and tips for landing a job in Finland.
