Meet Talent Boost Mentors
At HAMK, we have two talent boost mentors who can provide you with guidance regarding:
- Support network and services,
- Competence and career,
- Finnish language and everyday life.
We are here not only to support your job seeking process and career development in Finland, but also to help you establish a life in Finland. We also attend to questions related to hobbies, leisure time activities, friends, Finnish locals and so on.
You can see our mentors´ greetings and bios below, say hi back to them by contacting them via emails! If you have specific topics that you want to discuss with them or need help in the related field, you can book a mentoring session with our mentors directly.

Mentor: Katariina From (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Hei, hauska tavata! I am one of the Talent Boost Mentors. I worked at national recruitment and employment services before, and I am familiar with the different kinds of services for foreign students on both local levels and national levels. Besides working as a mentor at HAMK, I am an Italian language teacher in the Adult Education Centre (VOP) in Hämeenlinna. I will gladly answer your questions as a Finnish local and help you settle in as well as develop your career path in Finland.
Mentor: Qingyang Li (email@example.com)
Ahoy! I am one of the talent-boost mentors. I came to study my degree in Finland about five years ago. I have worked in many different Finnish companies and organisations as different roles, and thus have learned how to navigate in the Finnish labour market. Besides working as a mentor, I am also a part-time entrepreneur. I understand that the journey of staying in Finland as a foreign student is filled with ups and downs, joys and tears. I am here to listen to your needs and support you with guidance.

Tiitus recruitment platform
Tiitus is HAMK´s internal recruitment platform, which aims to develop better connection between companies and students. Companies that are interested in hiring HAMK students are posting their open positions at Tiitus.
International Friendship Programme
International Friendship Programme connects foreign students with Finnish locals, to promote internationalisation and knowledge of new cultures among both foreign students and Finnish locals. More importantly, it is one of the tools we use to integrate foreign students into Finnish society.
Step-by-step arrival guidelines are designed to support foreign students´ arrival process. Taking care of practical matters such as immigration, accommodation, banking, health care, and insurance can help students settle down faster and more smoothly. Opportunities for Finnish language learning opportunities and leisure time activities are also revealed.
