Student internships & International students
Through an internship, you will get an enthusiastic new employee to your company, which may well lead to successful recruitment. Contact SeAMK or Sedu to get more information on internships and other possibilities to cooperate with student workforce.
International students are one solution to the growing skills shortage in companies, and at the same time they bring unique added value to the entire province. With the help of international students, there is an opportunity to develop the company’s operating culture in a new way and they can have language and cultural skills that are essential for the company’s operations, such as export and import activities and various market studies. Check some of the latest talent presentations here.

In a case of international recruitment, here’s some tools to get started:
Detailed information on the recruitment process is available in the International Recruitment Guide for Companies. The guide was published in 2021 and can be found on Business Finland’s website.
Check out the funding opportunities! Talent Explorer funding is intended for companies that are looking for new markets abroad for their product, service or business model by hiring an expert. The funding can therefore be used to hire an international expert to bring new knowledge and expertise to the target market. Support for the immigration of an employee arriving in Finland is now also available: the pilot of immigration services offers SMEs the opportunity to receive services that facilitate entry for 1-2 people and their families.
Material suitable for international communication and talent attraction can be found, for example, in the Finland Toolbox material bank, which contains e.g. pictures, videos and presentations about Finland and its strengths.
