Career Guidance

Welcome to the Career Guidance pages!

Whether you have just arrived at the University or are returning for the start of yet another year, we are delighted to see you.

When to contact Career guidance and what is it?

Education that prepares you for employment

At University of Oulu, we encourage independent critical thinking and analysis. Rather than just teaching you to pass exams, we develop skills that employers value, such as how to work as part of a team, deliver presentations and tackle problems creatively.

Employability Development Services 

In today’s competitive global market, you need more than a strong academic qualification to achieve your potential as a graduate. That ‘s why we give you countless opportunities to make the most of Oulu as an undergraduate student, to boost your employability and set yourself up for throughout your life.   

You can contact Career Guidance if you are registered as a student or researcher  at the Oulu Univeristy. We offer assistance, if you:

  • Need help with questions relating to job seeking
  • Need information about the labour market situation 
  • Need information about the integration of graduating students into working life
  • Help with how to find thesis and traineeship placement opportunities
