Hi,
my husband got a 1 year job in Helsinki. We're from Croatia(EU). Can I got a job in Finland? I have a university master degree. Do I need to translate it to Finnish?
Thanx

What field do you have the degree in? If it's in English, it should be enough for most private sector employers (they don't necessarily check it). If it's a field where a degree is mandatory, then you need to check the requirements for the specific field.

As a EU citizen you may of course start working without any permit, if you can find a job. You've supplied practically no information for evaluating how hard or easy that job search would be.

I think this was answered already.
