Arcada launches Job Portal – A new online career service with many opportunities 

Published: 20.05.2021 / News

Arcada Job Portal is a new online career service for students. The platform gives employers broader opportunities to make their company visible through their own profile. It also serves as a gathering place for career-related material. 

On the new Arcada Job Portal, companies can register employer profiles and publish ads for jobs, practical training or thesis projects, as well as create and market career-related events for Arcada's students. 

As part of Arcada's actions within the national Talent Boost programme, the new portal was already launched in English last autumn to support Arcada’s international students and companies interested in recruiting international students. Now Arcada is launching the portal in Swedish too, and thus offers the service to all its students. 

– International students still find it difficult to find internships and jobs in Finland, despite the fact that it is in the interests of both Finland, the companies and the higher education institutions to retain the diversity and knowledge the international students bring. The Talent Boost action programme seeks to remedy this and the new Arcada Job Portal is a step in the right direction by creating a valuable interface between students and employers, says Sandra Slotte, responsible for sustainable career support at Arcada. 

The interest in the service has already been great among the companies. In the long term, Arcada plans to launch the platform also for alumni. 

– We are glad that many companies have already created employer profiles and published ads. It is valuable for our students to now have an easily accessible platform where they find a lot of career-related content gathered in one place, says Slotte.

Arcada joins UAS Pathway Studies to Finland programme

Four students

What happens when 18 Finnish universities of applied sciences (UAS) put their heads together and start thinking of how to bring more talented students to Finland? The UAS Path offers a unique, co-operatively carried out programme, where students wishing to study in Finland can first taste the Finnish study experience from their home country, online, and move to Finland to complete the degree after that.

A socially sustainable working life creates both well-being and profit

Today’s working life is undergoing changes, and we have a demographic structure that requires us to feel up to, and want to, work for a longer time. At the same time, we need more people in the labour market. How could employers, employees and leaders work together to obtain a socially viable working life? That was the theme of the alumni event “Alumnträffen 2022”.
