IT is in great demand and will be such for a long time. Good thing, that local language is not required.

Unless you are an MBA hotshot, a computer whiz or something like that. Then you might be OK.

All kinds of jobs are in demand as theres 300 000+ unemployeds, so whatever jobs you bring in theres no shortage of unemployeds to fill that job, especially if you bring jobs for youth without work expereince as their age group unemployment is 25-65%. So yes, jobs are in demand. :twisted:

Let me clarify , I would be the one looking for the job, yes i am an EU citizen, no i don't speak Finnish and i can't study it here so i would want to study it in Finland and work. So from whats been said IT seems a good prospect. why would i not need Finnish? , what kind of work would it be? and what sort of qualification would i need to get? and would they recognize qualifications from Australia?

PS Don't offer me jobs yet, I'm just looking

But note that you will also need to peak perfect Finnish for that too!
