In the summer, GTK people work in forests all over Finland. The season of fieldwork is relatively short and there is a lot of work to do. Each year, GTK hires students to learn about the field and help with sampling and processing, as well as studies and projects. The search for summer interns has now started and will be open until 15 February 2023. Some of the internships have the option of doing a thesis.

In GTK, interns perform different types of work according to their interests. Feedback from trainees last summer suggested that the tasks have been perceived to be appropriate in quantity and quality and the interns have got sufficient guidance and support to do them. The interns are supported by their own pre-person and team, as well as enthusiastic scientists and experts excited to share their expertise. Our work community and atmosphere have received a lot of praise from interns in recent years.

Popular and responsible internships

GTK is a popular workplace among geofield students. Last year, 582 applications came in. Thirty-six interns were hired for summer 2022.
