Aalto students are top students in their field. In Finland it is common that in addition to summer jobs, students work during the academic year. Most students usually have part-time jobs especially during the first years, while many work fulltime during the last few years of studies. Moreover, students are looking for job opportunities to take on after they graduate already during their studies.

There are different ways to gain visibility among students. For instance, you can have a stand in the lobby or organize your own event in our facilities (a lecture hall, etc.). Our students appreciate employers' presence on campus and are interested in learning about the career opportunities offered as well as hearing about the career stories of Aalto alumni.
We will help you, when you wish to advertise career- or recruitment-related content to students. We have various communication channels for advertising, such as direct mailing to students, Facebook-posts, and our Event Calendar.
Meeting students in person
Meeting students face-to-face is one way to build a positive employer image. At its best, the encounter strongly supports your recruiting processes. Your presence at the campus as well as sharing information about career opportunities you offer and daily work life enhances your attractiveness as an employer.
There are as many ways to meet students as there are employers. This is why we tailor our services to your needs. Organizing an employer event begins with selecting a date and a target group. When suggesting a suitable date and time, we take into account your schedule, the students' teaching schedule, other school events, student organizations’ events, exam weeks and holidays.
