International Expert day helps students to explore and get interested in local companies as potential future employers. This serves mutual interest as it is also important for companies to find ways to employ international students instead of them returning to their home country after graduation.
The pilot project carried out by Häme Chamber of Commerce is driven by changes in the business world: rapidly expanding work communities, the need for international talent and increasing labor shortages. These challenges affect many companies in Häme region.
