Building connections between employers and students is one of our guild’s most important functions. We aspire towards mutually beneficial cooperation, where both companies and the guild benefit from these interactions. By contacting our corporate relations officer, we can draft a custom plan for participating in the guild’s activities.

Examples of collaborations include excursions, annual celebrations and visibility at the guild room. We also provide companies the possibility to purchase space for articles and advertisements in our quarterly magazine Ruutiset, which is actively read amongst our members. One possibility is sponsor membership, which takes the form of annual support to the guild. Sponsor members’ names and logos also feature on our website, and they may leave employment postings in the “Rekrytoi IK:lainen” section.
