Tiitus is your link to the labour market

Tiitus is digital career and recruitment service that provides an easy and fast platform for students to find jobs, work placements and thesis opportunities. Create a profile to the service in the beginning of your studies and supplement it as you progress towards your degree. The system is based on self-evaluation of your skills and employer’s evaluation of skills required for the job. Algorithm will find you a job that matches your skillset and level of skills.
