EURES - Job opportunities in Finland and Europe
With guest Tina Sundqvist
EURES (European Employment Services) is a meeting place for people and jobs, where you can find information and services related to employment. They organize European Job Days, international job affairs online and on site, and provide advise for people moving from one country to another.
What European countries are Finnish job seekers currently interested in, and from what countries are people moving to Finland at the moment? Which are the fields of expertise and sectors needing a lot of workers these days, in the European job market. We also discuss the main differences in job seeking and working life in general – between Finland and other EURES countries.
Welcome, but you won't find work here. Wait, what?

And how do people find the overall climate for entre... pre... neurship in Finland? And are there some typical challenges they face in putting together new companies here?
