Getting job before moving?

Post by ColdNeedle » Fri Jun 23, 2017 3:01 pm

Hi.
Is it possible to get some manual-labor type jobs / low level jobs before I move there?
Do I need to be able to speak finish to do this? Like working in a factory or cleaning jobs?
And I wonder would I be able to get a apartment with his kind of jobs?

And how do you think that is going to work finding a job where no education is needed,
Ask yourself if you would be an employer, why would you (an employer) hire (you) some foreigner, not yet living in Finland, instead of someone that costs the same or even less with subsidies that actually speaks native Finnish and lives next door.

If there are such jobs available for foreigners that do not speak Finnish, they will be given with subsidies to refugees that are already here and jobless.

No one will have hire you in Finland for blue-collar jobs unless you are in Finland. You need to be in Finland in order to get such a job.

Labor market in Finland is much more limited than in Germany, so it actually does matter here if you speak language or not.
If you can speak it on some level and you are an EU citizen, then you can may be get some cleaning or farm job. But I guess your income will be lower than in Germany.

How the bosses communicate with the foreigners? Work contracts are in... which language? If factory has big machines then the user guides has to be provided... in which language?

Visa is for visiting, Residence Permit for residing.
