LOOKING FOR YOUR DREAM JOB? Instead of sending out masses of job applications, stop for a moment and focus on preparing an individual and carefully polished application. When you really want the job, pay attention at least to the following points.

1. ATTITUDE Having the right attitude is essential in job seeking and recruitment processes. This might sound like a cliché, but the good people with an excellent attitude usually stand out positively and get the job. Keep this in mind throughout the recruitment process —starting from the discussions you have at career events.

2. COMPETENCE Analyse your strengths and consider where you are good at. Think about what makes you special and how you can stand out from the other applicants. There could be dozens or even hundreds of other applicants seeking your dream job.

3. JOB ADVERTISEMENT Read the job advertisement carefully and also visit the company’s website. Find out what the job involves, what is expected of you, and what the potential employer and the branch of industry are like. Underline the main points of the advertisement that you will at least have to address in your application. Focus on this stage as you cannot cover every detail mentioned in the advertisement.


4. APPLICATION DOCUMENTS Time to apply. The employer will usually begin by reading your CV. Does your CV contain all the necessary information and all your accomplishments? Use a maximum of two pages to summarise your education, work experience, positions of responsibility, activity in student organisations, skills and any other relevant information. Your cover letter should be shorter than one page and convey your motivation for the job and for working for this particular company. Show your genuine interest and tell the employer what it is based on. Have you used examples to show your main areas of expertise?

5. LINKEDIN PROFILE It is worth keeping your LinkedIn profile up to date. An up-to-date profile adds value to your application and demonstrates your professional competence and networking skills. Add your profile to the contact details in your CV.

6. RECRUITMENT PROCESS You have been invited to the next stage of the recruitment process. Well done! Careful preparation is needed regardless of whether you are going to attend a video interview, a traditional interview, a case interview, or aptitude tests. You can practise almost all situations. Interview questions can be found in various sources including the Aalto CareerWeb Job Hunting Guide. You can also familiarise yourself with material on case interviews, practise video interviews on the Suomen Ekonomit website and complete aptitude tests on websites such as Aalto CareerWeb also provides information about upcoming career events.

7. CAREER SERVICES If you still feel that you may not have done everything in your power to prepare for applying for your dream job, do what many other School of Business students have done and make an appointment with the Career Specialist of the School of Business Career Services before applying. We can arrange a meeting to Töölö or Otaniemi. We promise that you will feel more confident after your visit. Good luck with your job hunting!

You are a fully-fledged and valued member of our community, taking part in real life client engagements from Day 1 under guidance of experienced consultants. An internship also serves as a potential stepping stone to a full time position at August after graduation.





have been working as a management consultant at August merely for half a year but I already could see myself working here five years from now. As a consulting company, August offers me possibilities to

improve my personal skills and gain knowledge in many fields of business. I am continuously thrown into new, unexpected situations which force me to adapt things quickly and step out from my comfort zone. You really need to have an open mind and sharp attitude to face these situations at work each day. I studied finance as my major at Aalto University School of Business before I joined August. Learning from books and lectures was no doubt a great way to get the basic knowledge of finance but what I myself appreciate a bit more is the experience I have gained from my previous jobs. Quite often people think that you need to have an extensive list of skills and work experiences to be able to apply for consultant. While solid analytical problem solving skills are undoubtedly re-

quired, in the end the ability to build lasting relationships is equally important. Working as a consultant is not just solving cases – you need to be good with people too. After I started at August I have had three totally different projects to work with. Our goal is always to find out what our client’s real problem is, how it could be solved and then deliver the most impactful solution. We work really closely together with our clients to ensure that we create solutions that are unique and useful for them. Working at August has been both challenging and rewarding. Even though the projects require a lot of effort, all the demanding work pays off in the end.

I am continuously thrown into new, unexpected situations which force me to adapt things quickly and step out from my comfort zone.

The feeling of facing challenges and then learning from them is something I really enjoy. Of course other important things inspiring me are the close-knit community and passionate people we have. It is always nice to go to our office when you know there will be people you really enjoy working with. It’s an encouraging atmosphere that inspires you to give your best.
