What do you need to take into account when recruiting an international student for a traineeship or work placement?

This academic year, 4 873 foreign students are studying at Estonian higher education institutions, who are potential future workers in the national labour market. They often find it harder to find jobs and traineeships than locals, and this is a concern that leads them to leave Estonia.  

Work in Estonia is organising a webinar aimed at employers interested in foreign professionals and interested in taking on a student from abroad for an internship or work placement! 

During the webinar, Police and Border Guard Board advisor Alina Suvorova will give an overview of the steps employers need to go through in order to have a basis for a foreign student to stay in Estonia after graduation. Ülle Tensing from the University of Tartu will open up the view from the university side and present the view of education that job and traineeship providers need to take into account. Olga Balanina, Work in Estonia business consultant, will introduce the Futulab environment, which will be used by students from all major universities this year. Futulab welcomes all internship and job offers from students.
