About Gateway to working life -event

Gateway to working life (finnish name : Portti Työelämään) has always been a recruiting event for TAMK students where local and national organizations come to TAMK to meet their future talents. The organizations are offering different kinds of work, internship and thesis opportunities plus a chance to communicate with them. The event is organized by Students’ Union of Tampere University of Applied Sciences (Tamko) in cooperation with TAMK’s recruiting services, Student Associations and clubs. In 2022 Gateway to working life was cancelled and replaced with DigiGate digital event.

Due to the Covid-situation year 2022 Portti Työelämään -trade show (the Gateway to working life) was cancelled. We came up with a new concept called DigiPortti/ DigiGate! Point of DigiGate was to connect organizations and their job-and trainee possibilities with students from all study fields!

DigiGate was organized on 31.1.-4.2.2022 on multiple media platforms like Tamko’s Instagram and Facebook pages and on website. Event was also be on Tamko’s newsletter and TAMK’s Intra. Tamko’s student associations and clubs were also taking part in organizing DigiGate.

During the event week Tamko’s social media were filled up with job-hunt related content like tips and tricks, alumn stories and of course 40 introductions of participating companies. DigiGate 2022 made it possible for students to find a job from their own sofa!
