Traineeship gives you competencies

During traineeship you will create networks in working life and gain professional experience. You will learn working life skills, and get new perspectives on your studies and career orientation. The traineeship can also lead to your future job. Therefore, you should carefully prepare yourself to traineeship. 

It is a good idea to think and structure your competencies even before the training period. For example, the career stories on Töissä.fi can help you structure your skills. Töissä.fi is a nationwide website for university and university students, which contains information on the employment of graduates. 

The University of Oulu supports approximately 300 degree-students´ traineeship. The traineeship support is paid either directly to the student as a personal scholarship (traineeship abroad) or as a financial compensation to the employer who pays the student's salary.
