A few tips for a soon-to-be-graduate

1. Stop for a moment and think about your career goals. Be open-minded about what you would like to do next and explore your possibilities. Book a time for personal career coaching and discuss your situation and career dreams with our career coach. 

2. If you don't have a job yet, take a loot at jobs aimed at BBAS here or the meeting point for BBAs, Tradenomiitti. In Tradenomiitti service you can also ask for advice from experienced colleagues or contact BBAs working in the workplace of your dreams. A lot of jobs are posted to the LinkedIn group of Professionals of Business and Technology. 

3. Are you preparing for a job interview or drafting a job application with a salary request? Contact our salary counseling and discuss your salary request with our expert. A well-grounded salary request gives you a good position in salary negotiations and you don't have to wonder whether you have asked for too much or not enough. 

4. Make sure your employment security is taken care of by joining the unemployment fund. In case of unemployment, the members of the fund are entitled to earnings-related allowance if certain conditions are fulfilled. You have to be employed when you join the fund. If you are a black level student member, you have already been a member of the fund.
