The university follows the careers of the graduates, e.g. with a career tracking survey. This year, the career tracking survey starts on 2 October 2023 and ends on 11 December 2023. The target group of the survey is those who have completed a Master’s degree in 2018 and those who completed their doctorate in 2020. The survey is carried out in cooperation with other universities as part of the Aarresaari network.
Why should you answer the survey? With the help of surveys, information is gathered about the academic labor market, the career paths of university graduates, and feedback about studies is collected. The information obtained is used in the guidance of current and future students (e.g. the Töissä.fi- service, which is said to be a particularly popular tool in high schools), in the development of curricula, and in studies about the working life of university graduates. The master’s career tracking survey is also part of the universities’ funding model, so the feedback is really important to the university.
Those who belong to the target group are approached by letter, e-mail or text message, so if you’ll received a contact, we really hope that you will respond to it! The results of previous years can be viewed e.g. Vipunen, maintained by the Board of Education. from the fi statistics service and the aforementioned Töissä.fi service. The University of Eastern Finland’s own results can also be found in Kamu (only in Finnish).
