Got here in August stayed in helsinki for a month then lived in vassa for a few months then moved to holland and just moved back to helsinki on new years. Im here because my girlfriend is originally from finland and i wanted to travel so we sold everything and moved here dont know how long i will be here for at least 2 years i think.

hei! welcome to the community :P

that's cool you get to be in Finland! I miss it so much :/
but yeah, it's quite hard to find a job in Finland lately, but there is always some job fairs you can go and maybe you can find something there! :]

Welcome to the forums! And to Finland.

Depending on what kind of a background you have and your knowledge of the language, the only place you can possibly get work in is restaurants. Even for those I believe you are required to have something called "hygieniapassi", knowledge of the hygiene practices of the food industry. If you read the previous posts here, you'll see it's quite difficult to find work without Finnish language unless you are in the IT field.

Good luck in your job search!
