CareerBoost: Boost your job search

5 April—31 May

CareerBoost supports unemployed academics with a comprehensive peer group program. This is a novel way to resolve the unemployment challenges facing highly educated immigrants living in the Helsinki-Uusimaa region. To enroll to the group, you must be registered as an unemployed jobseeker with the Employment and Economic Development Office.

In the CareerBoost program, you can crystallize your competence spearheads and enhance your job seeking skills in the Finnish labor market. The group also helps to create and grow a network and to remain motivated through the job seeking phase.

CareerBoost significantly enhances your chances of finding a job or identifying another solution, such as finding further education or starting out as an entrepreneur. The group uses English.

  • Each group consists of 7–10 academic participants.
  • Peer group meetings are organized once a week for 9 weeks, each meeting lasts 3 hours.
  • In addition to meetings, there are home assignments that complement the program.

Based on our experience, we know that your own active effort and input makes the difference, so please be prepared to work hard in this program.
