The Aalto University Student Union is looking for interns!

The Aalto University Student Union is a dynamic service and advocacy organization that represents 15 000 students. Now you have the opportunity to work with us and show us your skills! AYY is looking for 1 to 3 interns for a variety of tasks.

 

Possible tasks

Organizational development intern

Your duties include various support tasks related to organizational development and well-being at work. You will work closely with the Financial Director, Secretary General and HR Manager of the Student Union. One of your most significant tasks will be contributing to the quality manual of the Student Union.

Automation intern

During your internship, you will examine what functions could be automated at AYY. Previous ideas related to automation have concerned e.g. the compilation and distribution of the weekly newsletter, the process of granting operating grants, and the general distribution of information within the Student Union.

Project funding intern

There are various funding channels for many associations and public entities, but the processes for obtaining funding are complex. As an intern, your task will be to look into different project sponsors and consider which of them would be suitable partners for the Student Union.

Voluntary activity intern

A lot of voluntary work is conducted within the Student Union and the Aalto Community. During your internship, you will investigate what kind of support the volunteers need to succeed in their tasks. You will also consider how this support could be organized in such a way that the acquired knowledge could be recognized as part of the studies.

Service design intern

Service design could be applied to several of the Student Union’s projects this year. Two of the most significant of these are AYY’s student center project and the Student Union website update. Other potential future development targets include a survey regarding member satisfaction and enhancing customer understanding. Service design could also be utilized in many other areas.

Data analytics intern

Collecting and analyzing data is currently a growing trend in every company, but the issue has not been discussed in much detail from the Student Union’s point of view. During your internship, you will have the chance to interview the organization extensively and think about what kind of data we would need to support our own operations and how it could benefit us.

Communications intern

As a communications intern, you will be able to try out new communication tools and ways to better reach out to the members and stakeholder groups of the Student Union.

Intern to promote student well-being

One of the main themes of the Student Union and the University in 2018 is the well-being of students. During your internship, you will investigate and implement various measures to improve student well-being in the long run.

Intern for the archives

As an intern for the archives, you will find out more about the statutory archiving tasks in public administration and develop our archiving operations.

Is the list missing a task that you would be particularly good at? Tell us about it and how it would benefit AYY!
