Talent Boost is also hosting a job interview simulation at Kouvola and Mikkeli campuses.

These simulations are not actual interviews, but they simulate real-life online job interview situations. Therefore, they are a risk-free environment to test your interview skills with an expert from Finnish working life and a great opportunity to learn how you can improve these skills further.

The language of the interview simulations is English. It is also possible to practice your Finnish language skills in professional context by having a simulation (or parts of it) in Finnish – however, this is totally up to your preference. Duration of each simulation is up to 25 minutes, followed by brief individual feedback by Noora Welling from Lifeworks, who takes the role of the interviewer in these simulations.

Due to limited number of slots for interview simulations, pre-registration is needed. Registration info will be updated later.
