”Working as Kylli gave me such a variety of working experiences which is very hard to get elsewhere at one go and in one position. The work was also very easy to combine with studies, thanks to its flexibility and high degree of autonomy. Also, I got a bunch of life-long friends, a lot of courage and an extensive network for my future.” Kylli 2018–2019

”When I worked as Kylli I could plan and do my work totally independently, with a long-term view. As Kylli term is not restricted to one calendar year, for example, I could develop Kylli-related activities along with the accumulation of my own knowledge and skills.” Kylli 2014–2015

”Through working for The Finnish Business School Graduates I met so many people, from students to representatives of associations and business life. I realized only afterwards how much all those different backgrounds, views and experiences helped me to expand my own thinking.” Kylli 2009–2010
