Are you interested in increasing your visibility among University of Helsinki’s students and recent graduates? An employer profile in the JobTeaser job portal can be your 24/7 showcase!

With a JobTeaser profile, you can introduce your organisation, highlight its values and culture and advertise open positions or traineeship opportunities. You can include videos to describe your operations or add links to guide students to your own content.  

Select from two profile types

  • restricted employer profile, including the tabs About us and Jobs. See the Meltwater company profile.     
  • extensive company profile, with the opportunity to market events, publish news and provide more information about your teams in addition to the above. See the JobTeaser company profile.      

Make your organisation interesting as an employer

  • Students want jobs that have meaning. Highlight your mission and corporate culture!
  • Use videos and images to illustrate your texts.    
  • Tell stories and provide examples of how your organisation cares for its employees or is flexible.    
  • Highlight the community and benefits of your organisation. Students are often interested in the ability to work remotely or with flexible hours.  

Your profile doesn’t have to include everything about your organisation, you can also add links to your website.  

An employer profile in the University of Helsinki’s JobTeaser service is free of charge. If you are interested in gaining visibility in several universities and institutions of higher education with the same profile, JobTeaser provides this service for a fee.  

At the University of Helsinki, user numbers for JobTeaser are steadily increasing, with more than 7,000 students or alumni registered at the time of writing (16 March 2021).

Participating in the job fair will give you a comprehensive, up-to-date understanding of the role social science graduates will have in the professional life of the future.

You can also contact the University of Helsinki’s faculty or subject-specific student organisations directly. Many of these organisations are actively seeking corporate partners, for example, to organise visits for students. The organisations can also provide a direct link to the people who have the most relevant skills for your company. Some organisations require a fee for publishing events or open positions.

Companies may provide funding for their events through sponsorship. This is a common practice for conferences, for example. Sponsoring differs from donating in that it is subject to value-added tax. The sponsor pays a sum to the University for visibility.

As a sponsor, you can have your company featured in the programme booklet of the conference, or have a speaker slot in a suitable session. Sometimes the conference schedule may include an excursion to a sponsor’s production facility or another interesting location.

If you are interested in sponsorship, please contact us!

The JobTeaser service can help you reach the University’s students and recent graduates who are actively seeking opportunities in the job market. See also our other services and benefit from the expertise of our students!
