Advice and guidance to job seekers

  • Service
  • Nationwide except the Åland Islands
  • Public service

Once you have registered as a job seeker in the TE Services, the assistance and guidance services for job seekers provided by the TE Office or the local government pilot will help you apply for and find work that matches your competence.

The TE Office or the local government pilot will arrange an initial interview for you, if possible, within five working days of the start of your job search. The initial interview will analyse your situation and you will receive an employment plan. In the interview, you and the expert will discuss what kind of jobs you could apply for or whether you need to acquire training or change fields.

The initial interview will also assess your service needs. The assessment of service needs is a key part of supporting your employment and directing you to services. Your service will be selected according to what best helps you find employment.

The TE Office or the local government pilot will organise a job search discussion with you every three months after the initial interview or the previous job search discussion. Between them, you apply for work independently or participate in services promoting employment in accordance with the employment plan.

Even if you are not a customer of TE Services, you can receive guidance and advice on job-hunting from the national general advisory service for personal customers or the chat service.

When you need general advice on job-hunting, being a customer of TE Services, public services promoting employment, the use of Job Market Finland or the E-services of TE Services, call the national general advisory service for private persons or start a discussion in the chat.
