I am looking to relocate to Finland in 2016 in order to live with my partner. She will be studying for the next 4/5 years and I will be planning on getting a job and residing in Finland for the foreseeable future.
I understand that getting a job in Finland when you do not speak their language is incrediblydifficult. To combat this, I am being tutored for 3 months learning the basics of the language and hopefully learning enough to be able to withhold basic conversations.
I will be moving in with her and will be lucky enough to pay a fraction of the living costs as she can cover some of my rent etc. Although, this will only be a temporary condition.
I am wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and can enlighten me on to how easy they found it to find a job when they had integrated themselves into the community and perhaps got some kind of certification (hygiene pass, first aid, construction)? Also, if there is anything I can do to help the transition easier?
How to? Read other's experiences. Find useful advice on shipping, immigration, residence permits, visas and more.
