Kung may iba ka pang choice, wag Finland piliin mo. Yun lang

Hello! I'm a filipina as well. I have been to Finland Easter of last year and I liked it. I'm now thinking of giving living in Finland a try.. :)
Mahirap bang ma-hire in the IT industry sa Finland? Saang agency kaya ako pwede magpatulong? Or may company ba kayo alam na willing mag ayos ng papers for their employees?

Thank you talaga! :)

-Karen

Hi annka,

First and foremost, ano ba ang skillset mo and ilang yrs na experience mo? If possible wag ka ng mag agency, you can try sa online like monster.com, or direct sa company website na gusto mo. Multi national company ang e target mo, wala namang problema sa kanila dito kahit saang bansa ka galing or ano ang nationality mo as long as you fit to their requirements. Usually nag provide sila ng relocation agent na tutulong sayo once na hired ka na, and relocation money.

Ang hassle lng is ang gobyerno natin, may regulation kasi tayo na dapat may bond ang employer if direct hired. Suspended na ito last 2 months but sa pagkakaalam ko pinipilit pa ring e implement ng poea. Case to case basis then. If sa ibang bansa ka na nag work ngayon, madali lng ang processing. Minimum of 1 week or two makakuha ka na ng residence permit as long as walang objection sa documents mo.

Hello fellow Filipinos,

May tanong lang po ako, and hopefully masagot po nyo po sana :-)

Sa mga nakarating po dyan sa Finland thru-job placement, mas makakatulong ba talagang may basic knowledge na ng Finnish language para makapagtrabaho dyan? I understand na talagang kakailanganin matutunan yung language once na nagtatrabaho na dyan. But how about even before landing a job there, magiging advantageous bang may alam na ako?

Looking forward to your replies. Thanks.

Hey jcy!

Thanks for the reply. I've had an experience with object oriented programming (.Net), databases (Oracle & SQL Server) & Crystal Reports, 1year ako dyan. Tapos 2 years, nasa Business Intelligence ako (SAS). Ang hinahanap ko na actually may kinalaman sa Business Intelligence. Actually medyo ang dami ko na rin naapplyan like KONE, yng naggagawa ng elevators (hindi daw nagpprocess ng work/residence permits), tapos yung Aureolis Oy, kasi SAS partner sila, ito naman talo ako sa experience pero kinonsider nila ako for a while, tapos yng reaktor innovations oy, sabi ang kailangan daw nila marunong magsalita ng Finnish :? Yung iba hindi pa nagrereply. Ang hirap din kasi maghanap ng SAS.

Ayun, nagttry na rin ako sa Monster but to no avail.... Ganun ba talaga kahirap? :( Paano mo nadiscover yang opportunity na yan?

Annka,

Good to know na kinoconsider ka na ng isa. Malaking step na yan. Regarding sa skillset, based sa mga nakausap ko (konti lang kasi ang kilala ko na I.T related) medyo C++ ang madali. Pero continue lang ang pag apply online. Prayer and perseverance lang talaga.

for some reason i like this thread, despite the recent conversations being about miscellaneous issues that don't pertain to me...but, reading what everyone writes gives me a refreshers course in tagalog...and somehow makes me miss hearing the language being spoken and also my family
b0 selecta!
