A youth worker has also been appointed for each school to help with all matters related to summer jobs. In addition, schools, youth centres and Ohjaamo will organise job-hunting instruction sessions, summer job events and CV workshops during the spring, if the COVID-19 situation permits. This site also contains tips and links for summer job hunting and Summer Job Voucher openings later in the spring.
