Tule mukaan!

In personal coaching, we help you with finding a job and developing your skills (e.g. related to studies).

Career coaches help you in your job search. We offer career coaching even for union representatives. Our coaches are very familiar with various allowances and support measures (adult studies, studying as an unemployed job seeker, adjusted daily allowance etc.) so you will get clarity on these issues as well.

The coaching takes place via video so you can participate anytime and anywhere. The coaching is free of charge.

It can be challenging to find out your skills and strengths. What am I good at and what might require further development? What are my abilities related to my personal characteristics?

It’s easy to show one’s work and study history, but how to identify your abilities and the things that make you unique? With the help of our study material, you get a better understanding of your existing skills and strengths. Recognizing these qualities increases self-esteem and creates a good foundation for further development at work and what you tell about yourself in a possible job interview.
