Hallo/Hei/ Terve everyone. Its been a while since I have posted anything. All I can say is the life of a student includes a lot of studying (the primary reason for going to school in the first place 🙂 ). Other than that, I was training for the following event…
Unfortunately I got the venue wrong and ended up doing this,
Snow running… it was good weather for a run.
But I digress…..
The international get-together and dinner took place on the 21st February at the Agora building in the university. The theme of the get-together was employment and entrepreneur opportunities in Jyväskylä and central Finland as a whole after studies. The main participants were the city of Jyväskylä, Protomo, Jykes, Jyväskylä innovation, Yritys Kehitys, JAMK (Univeristy of applied science) and University of Jyväskylä. There was also the introduction of a student driven co-operative called Fiksio. The audience was made up of students from JAMK and the University of Jyväskylä.
Evenings entertainment was singing by a local choir.
The occasion was graced by the mayor of the city,

The official introduction and presentation about the student co-operative, Fiksio was done at the event. Soon followed by some current and former students sharing with the audience their work experience in the region of central Finland…

After the speeches and info session, there was time to exchange contacts and network over a meal…
As all good things come to an end, it was the hope of the organizers that the participants went away with more information with regards to job opportunities.
I almost forgot, the university is celebrating its 150 birthday this year….
