Trainee for StartUp School, apply by 15 February

StartUp School is Haaga-Helia’s service that supports students who want to become entrepreneurs. We offer hands-on assistance, courses, and events. Currently there are some 25 new companies founded annually through StartUp School.

StartUp School is now looking for a Trainee to help it in its activities from 1 April to 30 June 2015.

As you can deduct from the name, StartUp School in itself is a good example of a startup. According to one definition, “a startuper is an individual passionate about working with small, driven groups of entrepreneurs, who loves the idea of wearing multiple hats and working long hours to complete a goal. They thrive in an innovative environment, eagerly accept challenges, and find joy in not knowing what’s around the corner.” So if you recognize yourself in that description, be sure to apply!

We appreciate if you already know something about StartUp School, have taken part in our events or courses. Fluency in English and Finnish languages is appreciated. To apply, you have to be a Haaga-Helia student with your compulsory internship still to complete.

As a StartUp School Trainee you will:

  • manage StartUp School’s communication (social media, website, newsletter, communication with internal and external partners);
  • organize events;
  • manage projects;
  • participate in the development of StartUp School;
  • do different types of research;
  • carry out secretarial duties (meeting minutes, correspondence, databases, etc.);
  • look for the next awesome Trainee;
  • have lots of fun.

The internship is paid. To apply, please send your CV and a free-form essay on the subject “How would I develop StartUp School?” to by 15 February. The interviews will be organized on weeks 9-10. We would also appreciate your availability on 30-31 March to check out what the current Trainee does.
