Pesti Career Day 2022 is online

The company database is open! On the original Pesti event day, Thursday 20st of January, companies will host online-presentations and meetings for example at Zoom, Microsoft Teams,  Discord, Webex and Google Meet.

Due to the rapid deterioration of the covid situation in Oulu and Finland, we have decided to cancel the Pesti 2022 campus event.

The Pesti Career Day campus event will be replaced by a employer directory on the Pesti website, where you can provide a presentation of your company. The purpose of company presentations is to have a comprehensive coverage of employers to students in a single location. You can also add videos or links to e.g. Microsoft Teams or Zoom meetings you might like to arrange. Presentations may also include a Q&A or interviews and students could also reply with their own videos or messages to an address you provided.

Pesti Career Day is the biggest recruiting event in the Northern Finland, bringing job seekers and employers together. Pesti is organized annually at the Linnanmaa campus of the University of Oulu.   

Job seekers have an excellent opportunity to discuss with recruiting experts, network, and acquire useful tips for planning their own career and practical advice to support their application processes. Pesti has free entrance, so everyone searching for a place to work and studying their career possibilities are welcome to participate!


Employers are provided with a comprehensive event package. During the day employers can meet students of every field from both the University of Oulu and the Oulu University of Applied Sciences. The employers can also introduce themselves in the Pesti’s company database, which can be used by the job seekers even after the event.

The international University of Oulu has 13,000 students, 8 faculties and many specialized research units. Together, they create the foundation for multidisciplinary research, new innovations, and the training of new professionals for demanding work life. Learn more about what the university has to offer.
