In national project the competences of the staff of higher education organisations, students and employers were enhanced to apply for a job and to market and brand themselves by developing the use of social media and virtual encounters for students and employers.

The project investigated and made visible the practices of utilizing social media for work search and getting employed for higher education staff, students and working life representatives. Based on this knowledge training packages were planned and developed so that they could be used nationally by students and guidance personel. To support recruitment virtual encounters were tested to enable the employers and students to meet each other.
