Töissä Suomessa | At Work in Finland


A practical guide on how to find a job in Finland


At Work in Finland was a project supporting highly educated immigrants into employment from 1.9.2016-28.2.2018.  During the project we encountered hundreds of international jobseekers.  Based on the experiences gained in this project we have created a very simple guide on how to find a job in Finland?
