We like to welcome recent graduates into the Helsinki Alumni community with a relaxed evening event focussing on career skills. From the University to the career track is an event where alumni with interesting and varied careers talk about their career paths and give you useful tips for navigating the world of work.
The evening will also feature free-form discussion, giving you the opportunity to exchange experiences with other recent graduates and ask any questions you may have regarding jobseeking, career planning and employment in general.
“It was really interesting to hear about the experiences other recent graduates have had while applying for work. Another positive feature was that there were people there who work in recruitment. They gave us important points and tips, for example on what to highlight in a job application.”
“Inspiring conversations and useful ideas, networking is so important when looking for work.”
We organise these events twice a year. Check the events calendar for the next From the University to the career track!
Coach Café evenings allow students and newly graduated alumni and more experienced alumni to meet in a relaxed setting for a few hours.
Students receive support, tips and coaching from the alumni, while alumni learn about students’ career expectations and current study programmes, and can connect with their alma mater.
Depending on the speakers, participants and themes, the evening sessions can take the form of small-group discussions or a more informal exchange of experiences and views over a cup of coffee.
