Collaborate with Metropolia
We can build different kinds of collaboration with your organisation, based on your needs.
Metropolia educates future professionals in the fields of business, culture, health care and social services and technology.
Posting job ads
You can post e.g. full-time jobs for graduating students or Career Boost professionals, part-time jobs and summer jobs in Metropolia's JobTeaser.
In JobTeaser you can find talent from junior level to professionals with several years of work experience.
You can post jobs throughout the year. Most students graduate in May, but graduation dates are set for each month of the year.
Work placement collaboration
You can post also work placement ads in JobTeaser. Each bachelor's degree includes 30 ECTS credits of compulsory work placement (appr. 5 months altogether), and also Career Boost programmes include a placement
The length and mode of work placement varies across fields of study. A work placement can be anything from a few weeks to months depending on the practices in the degree programme.
Students in bachelor's and master's degrees can work on a thesis topic set by your organisation, guided by a Metropolia expert. You can post a thesis assignment in JobTeaser or contact a suitable degree if you wish to discuss your idea first.
The thesis is mainly designed to meet the needs of the employer. The content is closely linked with the curriculum of the particular field of study.
The goal of the thesis project is that the student develops and demonstrates his/her ability to apply knowledge and skills in expert duties related to professional studies. The thesis is a theoretical or empirical research or a development or planning project. It may also contain an artistic section.
The thesis can be carried out as a personal or a small scale group project. Students decide individually when they begin working with their thesis, typically however during the last year of their studies. You can post thesis assignments throughout the year in JobTeaser.
Network with talent
- Events: You can build your networks for instance through virtual or face-to-face visits to your organisation or in field-specific networking events.

Career Boost programmes to support employment
Metropolia runs Career Boost programmes in collaboration with the employment services of Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa and Kerava:
- targeted at unemployed jobseekers who hold a suitable higher education degree from abroad and whose native language is other than Finnish, Swedish or Sami
- fields: automation business, business accounting, ICT, real estate and construction and a special education track for nurses to obtain the right to practise profession
- field-specific studies to complement and update competence
- professional Finnish
- recognition of competence by a Metropolia expert
- career coaching
- employer collaboration and networks
International talents boost expertise and innovation in your organisation
International professionals bring their competence and their networks and their unique personality to your organisation. They are motivated to find an expert-level job in their own field in Finland and to build their lives in the happiest country of the world.
Yet, it is about so much more. Creativity, innovation, high performance - diversity of the staff has been found to increase all these factors, crucial to the growth and competitiveness of the organisation.
When you recruit international experts, you get new perspectives, wider customer understanding and language pool and specialised market area knowledge. Living, studying and working in another culture bring also e.g. creativity, resilience and skill to operate in international networks and environments.
Utilise other services and funding options
Talent Boost networks in Finland and in the Helsinki region are constantly developing new services for employers to make recruitment of international professionals smoother and easier. Finland needs all the competence of international professionals and the about 4000 international future talents that graduate from Finnish higher education institutions yearly.
