Kaura career service offers a meeting point for students and employers!

Employers can publish job and internship vacancies, thesis and project topics suitable for students on the kaura career service. Companies can also use the haavi feature to search for new talent without publishing an advertisement.

Students and alumni can create their own profile in the kaura career service, which can be used to find suitable job offers and apply for interesting job, internship, thesis and project opportunities. 

Under the Projects tab, you can publish new project initiatives and search for collaborators and partners.

The Tiitus app, used by Kaura Career Services, provides a platform for students and employers to manage the entire recruitment process. Kaura handles both the application itself and the communication between the employer and the applicant. NOTE! KAO also uses Tiitus, so employers can reach both secondary and higher education students with a single company profile!

ATTENTION STUDENTS: Android users can download and use English version of the app, iPhone users will be notified shortly about English version of the app. In the meantime you can use desktop version.

Hidden jobs and networking

Don't forget the hidden jobs!

You can also approach interesting companies and organisations directly with an open application or by networking with people in your field, for example via LinkedIn.

Today, only a quarter of people find a job by responding to a job advertisement and most jobs found are 'hidden jobs'.  Networking is a good way to find hidden jobs. Professional networking should start during your studies. Good networking channels include fairs, seminars, networking nights and social media platforms such as Linkedin.

Quality beats quantity - you'll get the most out of making quality contacts for your career. While you are seeking help for your own employment through networks, be prepared to help others: share information and introduce people to each other.

The Career and Recruitment Fair is an excellent opportunity to meet and network with employers in the region, and to get tips to support your own career planning and employment. Come along, feel free to contact the employers and ask them about the things you want to know!

Career planning

Career planning starts with you and your aspirations for the future. Career planning is a conscious and goal-oriented activity and is a process that lasts throughout your studies and working life. What is important in career planning is your attitude.

A good self-esteem is the starting point when looking for a job. It is important to know what skills you have and what skills you can offer employers. In addition to self-awareness, you need to know the labour market and the employment situation in your field, what opportunities and options are available to you. Research, think, reflect, plan and draw up a specific steps on how you will implement the plan and reach your goal.

You can also check out the opportunities related to your education at töissä.fi!

Job application, CV

Job application
With a job application, you are seeking an invitation to a job interview. By applying, you convince the employer that you have the skills needed for the job.

If you can use the same application to apply for several jobs, that's not good! A good application always responds to the job advertisement submitted by the employer and is submitted in the way and format the employer wants (email, recruitment website/app, pdf., video, etc.).
CV / Resume
A CV or resume is often attached to a job application. In a CV, you describe your education, experience, skills and career plans. The CV and the job application complement each other.
Portfolio

With a portfolio, you can showcase your professional skills in a concrete way. There are different ways to build a portfolio and different sectors have different recommendations and requirements for a portfolio. The portfolio can be in both paper and electronic form.

You should start building up your portfolio during your studies, for example by describing and presenting your learning projects. You can start building your own skills profile in the KAMK kaura Career Service.

For advice and support on career planning or writing job applications, CVs and portfolios, check out the training courses offered by Momentum first. You can also contact kaura@kamk.fi to arrange a personal meeting.
