Trainee from Jamk

Practical training is an integral part of a student’s professional development. With the help of trainees, the company has the opportunity to be a creator of future experts. At the same time, the organisation will become known as an employer and gets to know potential employees for the future.

According to the experience of employers, trainees develop not only their own skills, but also the skills of their workplace. The trainee’s up-to-date knowledge and skills can be put to use in jobs that would otherwise lack the knowledge or resources. Examples of these may be development assignments, internationalisation efforts or the use of social media.

You can get more detailed information about the tasks suitable for practical training from our internship contacts.

Thesis – when you are seeking to resolve a problem

Nearly all theses are written for companies and organisations. The thesis serves the development needs of working life and strengthens the student’s professional skills. When compiling their thesis, the student will apply the theory and work methods of their professional field into practice. If your company has a thesis topic available, please do not hesitate to contact our practical training contacts or use our notification form.

Jamk student projects for working life

Jamk students can accept student project assignments from companies and other organizations as a part of their studies. The assignments range from surveys to research, and from prototype creation to even event management! The most important thing is that the students can execute the assignment as a project with set goals and schedule. Our experts and coaches at Jamk are there to support and guide the students throughout the project.
