jobs for american mig welder

Post by tyler94x » Tue Jan 30, 2018 9:43 pm

As stated in the title, I'm a mig welder that lives in CT (who also has a construction labor background) and is looking to move to Finland. I understand its pretty hard, but I wont be quitting so I was wondering if anyone can tell me if this field makes it possible to land a job there.. I assumed yes by looking at the listings on the eures portal and the statistics of their skill shortages, but I have to secure one before going overseas which makes it less convenient for them. I haven't started applying yet because I have to save more before moving but If anyone here can provide any staffing agencies there that work with people outside the eu or any helpful listings and info at all id really appreciate it. I'm also starting to learn Finnish now rather that waiting. I ordered a course and a dictionary and have been studying it every night. Thanks.

Imho welding should be a skill that will land you a job. There aren't enough Finnish welders, so companies do get skilled people from abroad. Problem lies in that you are non EU citizen. If you want residence permit based on work, then people who are EU citizens have priority. Maybe you should start to contact recruiting agencies, see eg https://duunitori.fi/tyopaikat/suomi/hitsaaja/

Visa is for visiting, Residence Permit for residing.
