Finnish working life
What Finnish employers value and how the Finnish labor market works? Info-packages concerning how to live and work in Finland can be very useful for getting to know the local work culture as well as legal and practical issues.
Whether you are looking for a job during or after your studies, higher education institutes’ services and other public services help you find job offers and identify your own possibilities, interests and skills.
It is important that you have gathered some work experience during your study period, regardless if the job has been an internship position, a summer job, a part-time job or some other type of work project course. Practical experience gives you a lot for the future.
Turku Supplement for Employers is meant to support the intermediate labour market as well as help the long-term unemployed to find employment from the open markets. The supplement is paid to the employer and it is meant to be used for the costs caused by the employment.
Turku Supplement can be applied for by employers who hire a person who has been unemployed and received labour market subsidy for over 300 days. The working hours of the employed person must be at least 25h/week.
