Some tips for a good profile picture

  • Set the camera to 'portrait', if you have that setting. Then you get a soft and blurred background, which is preferable when you are taking portraits. You can also take the picture against an anonymous and calm background, for example outdoors with greenery or a house facade in the background, or indoors with a curtain, fabric or wall.
  • Make sure to have the light/sun in your face. If you're shooting indoors, feel free to stand by a window - that's where you often have the best and most natural light.
  • Make sure your entire face is visible in the photo and not cropped.
  • Look into the camera. You don't necessarily need to take the photo straight on - angling the body and face slightly can make the photo feel more natural and relaxed.
  • Check that the image is sharp and has good resolution.
  • Think about what mood you want to convey and that your expression feels natural to you.

Det flesta praktikperioder är ca 3-5 månader. Men om de endast är 3 månader har de ofta en till period till som börjar nästan direkt efter. Den perioden kan då vara 3-5 månader. Dvs om studenten gör båda perioderna hos er så blir det 6-8 mån som in princip är sammanhängande.

Praktik görs över hela året. Höst- och vårtermin samt även under sommaren. Det finns en viss övervikt i antalet som gör under vårterminen men många av dem gör då också en första period under höstterminen och fortsätter sedan på samma arbetsplats under våren. Dvs att utbudet av tillgängliga praktikanter som ska ut på praktik blir ända relativt jämt under året. Det finns också ibland viss flexibilitet vilket gör att du som arbetsgivare kan alltid fråga en studerande om de kan börja tidigare eller senare.
