Municipal election webinar
What are municipal elections? What do municipal councilors do? Could I run as a municipal candidate? How?
For example these questions will be answered at the municipal election webinar organized by LTKY and KOE on Tuesday 17.11.2020, starting at 15:30 in Zoom.
The municipal election webinar presents municipal elections in general and what it is to be a young municipal councilor. In addition, the young representatives of the parties will tell about the current themes in the next council term in both Lappeenranta and Lahti. To participate in the webinar, you don’t have to be a long-term influencer, just curiosity about getting involved in municipal politics is enough.
In the municipal election webinar, it is possible to ask questions from party representatives as well as about municipal elections in general. Questions can be asked at the event or in advance via the anonymous form.

Note: the event will be held in Finnish!

Greetings from the Career Services!
There will be many changes in the career services during November. Hopefully, these changes will have a positive outcome and help you when planning your careers as well as searching for work.
New Career Center launched as of 9 November
A new Career Center platform for the students of LUT and LAB will be launched on 9 November. All the career services will be available also for the students of LAB beginning from then.
All career services can be found via the new Career Center whether it’s a question of career planning, education concerning work search, recruiting events or personal career services.
Register to Career Center at lut.jobteaser.com as of 9 November. Assistance for operating the new system will be available in a Zoom presentation on Monday the 9th of November at 11.00-11.30 am.
A new recruitment portal in the beginning of December
Most Finnish universities begin to use a new JobTeaser recruitment portal in the beginning of December. The previous portal, LUT Rekrynet, will be shut down and all the workplaces will be available in the Jobs section of Career Center. For the students this means that there will be more international opportunities when it comes to labour market.
During November there will be mostly international positions available because company launching will happen later on in the process. LUT Rekrynet recruitment portal will be serving you normally until the change.
Find Your Career
Find Your Career platform for self-study will serve you at the new Moodle 24/7. You can use the services of the platform from the very beginning of your studies all the way until graduation. Remember that you can, for example, get comments on your own CV or application letter via Find Your Career platform. You can benefit from Find Your Career also by gaining 2 credits for your optional studies.
