How to Work in Finland

As part of the UNICOM-project, Uniting Companies and International University Talents, the Career Services offer a self study career coaching package “How to Work in Finland” in English. The self study materials focus on identifying your skills and how to find a job in Finland. The self study package is suitable for international degree students, doctoral candidates, Ph.D’s and post docs.

The self study package focuses on:

  • The Finnish work culture
  • How the Finnish labour market works
  • Your strengths, skills and career interests
  • Job seeking in Finland

How to complete the package:

The self study package is found on Moodle and you can complete it in your own pace. The UNICOM-project is funded by the European Union (ESF) and the participation requires you to fill in a start note and a finish note. These documents are also found on Moodle.

We have been able to include the possibility to get a Reiss Motivation Profile (RMP) analysis to the self study package. The RMP helps you understand your values and motivation. RMP is a scientifically proven approach to understanding motivation. The 16 basic desires of human nature assessed by the Reiss Motivation Profile determine our values, predict our behavior and influence the development of our personality trait. Once you have completed the self-study package, filled Start and Finish notes and returned your Career plan in Moodle, you can book an appointment for RMP and a meeting with a career coach on campus or online.
