Working at the Finnish Climate Fund: Cindy and Juho share their experiences as interns

The Finnish Climate Fund’s internship programme continued in autumn 2023 with two analyst trainees. The internship gave Cindy Miettinen and Juho Tarvainen memorable experiences working as part of the Climate Fund team on projects aimed at preparing funding decisions. Cindy and Juho value the insights they gained in a skilled work environment.

Juho and Cindy started as analyst trainees at the Finnish Climate Fund at the beginning of autumn 2023.

My time as an analyst trainee at the Finnish Climate Fund has been a valuable experience. It was motivating to deepen my knowledge of investment analysis while also engaging with a meaningful subject matter. Working with the Climate Fund’s experts has taught me a lot, and the internship has been a unique opportunity. I believe that the things I’ve learned will continue to be useful long into the future. I’m now in an excellent place to return to Aalto University to continue my master’s studies,” Juho Tarvainen says.

My internship at the Finnish Climate Fund has given me interesting and versatile experiences thanks to the different projects and tasks I got to work with. I found it particularly interesting to work on projects in sectors with which I was previously unfamiliar. I have been part of projects involving two different sectors, and I also got to experience a positive funding decision. It has been motivating to provide genuinely meaningful services as an analyst, and I believe that what I have learned during my time with the Climate Fund will serve me well during the rest of my career,” Cindy Miettinen says of her experience.

Juho’s internship ended in December 2023 and Cindy’s in January 2024. The Finnish Climate Fund would like to thank Juho and Cindy for their contributions during the internships and wish them success with their studies.
