Jobseekers had fewer job vacancies in Finland from the beginning of autumn, and according to the Ministry of Labor, unemployment is expected to rise in 2021, when jobs will continue until next summer. Despite the gloomy outlook, a technical recruiter Sofia Pohls told APN that people with a technical background should have no difficulty finding work.
"Definitely a lot of roles as data analysts, data engineers, we’re looking for a lot of machine-learning people, a lot of people with artificial intelligence. So all of these roles are currently in high demand and talent is very limited," Pohls said.

Pohls said jobs would also be available in the social and health care, leadership and creative sectors, as well as in craft-intensive sectors such as construction. He urged people looking for work to create their own network of contacts and references, as it can go a long way in Finland.
Advice on salaries, contracts and work exams
We sought advice from labor market experts on a number of employment-related issues, such as language and other forms of discrimination, wage transparency, the Finnish work trial system or "work trial" and fixed-term employment contracts.
The APN spoke Katja-Pia Jenu, Inspector of the Regional State Administrative Agency of Southwest Finland (commonly known as Avi) and Inka Douglas, lawyer at STTK, employee association. Both said that the general rule of Finnish law is that employers must always justify the reason for a fixed-term contract and not a permanent one.
"If the employer has a permanent need for labor, the employment contract should be valid indefinitely," Jenu said.
"Fixed-term contracts are illegal when they are repeatedly performed for the same work between the same parties without a valid reason within the meaning of the law," Douglas took note.
