Services

Users who want to take advantage of the services have the option to register for a paid membership and choose the duration: 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months.

EntreCom Enterprise Community OY provides the user with an internet platform that allows the user to establish contact and share information with other users. Our team can also match the users with each other if we receive such a request. Matchmaking can cover profiles with similar interests, job seekers and employers, mentors and mentees, but will not sell or advertise your services or products if there was no such additional service agreement between the user and EntreCom Enterprise Community.

 

The members are automatically signed into the Telegram chat, where will be provided information about open working, volunteering and internship positions for international talents in the Oulu region. The member is free to join or leave the chat at any time but should not share the information from the private chat with any third parties.
