Job search information services
- Nationwide except the Åland Islands
- Public service
Job search begins with obtaining information. Once you know how the labour market works, it will be easier for you to make decisions in your job search. Job search information services are data sets that allow you to independently obtain information about work, applying for work, professions, professional fields and their future prospects.
- In the Avoimet työpaikat search service, you can view real time advertisements posted by employers and entrepreneurs to recruit staff or find a partner or successor for their business. You can use the Job Watch (Työpaikkavahti) service to receive email alerts about jobs postings that match your criteria.
- The Tips for finding a job page contains job search instructions, including those on writing a job application and CV and preparing for an interview.
- The Occupational Barometer (Ammattibarometri) features the TE Offices' assessments of the short-term outlook for key occupations. It can help you limit your search to areas where there is demand for your skills.
- The Ammattinetti service offers information on the current and future employment situation. It contains descriptions of more than 50 professional fields, hundreds of occupations as well as interviews with people working in various professions and their stories about their own careers. Working life articles written by experts are concise reports on current trends and phenomena in the labour market
