Looking for job in Finland

Sunday January 25th, 2009. 04:19 AM. [Finland culture, Job]. 4 Comments.


I am currently looking for job actively in Finland, (Tampere and Helsinki), as you know. Here is my CV.

After one month looking job offers you start to become a specialist of finding jobs, and soon I will make a guide for Finding a job, as Phil did some years ago. It’s common sense that I will not published it until it is proved that is succesful.

But the funny Dilbert strip of today, made me remember one useful resource to find a good job. To look the companies listed by the “Great Places To Work” Institute. Specially as a foreigner, if you don’t know so well Finnish companies.


The list for 2008 is:

Well, I hope that such list works in finland, because in méxico that lis is made by someone who never worked in any company (or may be works for them by making such kind of lists), I have meet some people from those companies and they use to say that its a hell to work there

Hola Santy, gracias por tu comentario.
Esta es la lista de México que ha elaborado el mismo instituto… http://www.greatplacetowork.com/best/list-mx.htm¿Corresponde a la realidad?
En la web dicen que se realizan las listas atendiendo a las puntuaciones que dan los empleados mediante una encuesta.
Eso sí, siempre es mejor una opinión de primera mano :)

Pues he estado revisando la lista y en un primer vistazo aparecen varios bancos, si trabajas en la nómina del banco directamente tienes algunas concesiones económicas, el problema es que muchos de los empleados trabajan en base a honorarios o en base a empresas de contratación temporal, por lo tanto no están contratados por la propia empresa y me comentan que es bastante malo trabajar así.
