Vastuullisuussuunnitelmia hevosyrittäjille, päiväkodin pihan uudistamista, asiakastapahtuman järjestämistä… HAMKissa opiskellessa jalka on usein tukevasti työelämän oven välissä, sillä opiskelijamme pääsevät tiiviisti mukaan ratkomaan työelämän haasteita. 💡 Tilanne onkin todellinen win-win molemmille - opiskelija oppii ja yritys hyötyy. Opiskelijat tulevat myös tutuiksi yrityksille ja monesti opiskelijoiden joukosta bongataan juuri ne hyvät tyypit, joita voi palkata suoraan! 🙌 Lue tammikuun uutiskirjeestä lisää esimerkkejä, mitä kaikkea opiskelijamme ovat päässeet tekemään ➡️ #HAMK
