Marketing Jobs in Finland

Post by grvbahal » Tue Nov 17, 2009 11:32 pm

Hi,

I am a current MBA student in California and wish to move to Finland after studies. I have worked as a IT consultant but want to shift to marketing after MBA. During summer I worked in Finland and really liked the culture there. Can anyone provide me guidance on how to search for marketing jobs in Finland?

I am also fine doing any other job initially to get my foot in the door.

Your best bet is to contact the company you worked for before.

Thanks guys. I will also contact my company but am looking for other avenues as well.

I know consumer product industry is tough as I don't understand Finnish but what about technology marketing?

Marketing?

Well, the very first product you have to sell is your own abilities!

Good luck!

Thanks a lot for all the responses.

Currently my resume is in the US format (one page,not too much detail, strong action words etc) and before applying to companies in Finland I want to tailor it. Any tips on how the format is different in Finland ?
