Career coaching services and support for employment

Career coaching services are meant for Karelia UAS degree students. The student who is about to finish one´s studies can seek support to graduate and employment. Career coaches offer individual coaching and support for employment and further studies. Career coaching

  • strengthens students career and working life skills

A student can ask for career coaching by him/herself or with the help of study counsellors.
