Graduate seminar in Finland

Workshop with the graduates
15-10-22 13:00 | Graduate

Last Wednesday we invited our Helsinki based graduates from the 2015 class to a breakfast seminar.

20 graduates, twelve females and eight males, from the capital area participated in the seminar. Purpose with the seminar was to introduce all the graduates for each other and to share information about their new employer. 

The seminar was kicked off by a short presentation where everyone briefly shared their background and what their daily work looks like as graduates in Nordea's different business areas and functions. 

After the introductions, a short workshop was held where graduates in small groups brainstormed and shared ideas regarding a specific topic. This time the assignment was to discuss ideas for a marketing campaign.
