that's a bit reassuring.
I'd like to work in Finland either in the AFS Finland office (a student exchange programm with whom I have been there). It would be nice because you get to meet different peoples and help them get used to the finnish culture before they go in their host families.

if not, I'd like to work maybe in Universities or something to help foreign students. I want to study in Anthropology, and get specialized in the finnish culture. It sure would be really nice!

I should try what? working for one or the other?
well I sure would have first to finish my bachelor at least! Next time I will be in Finland it will be for my studies, but as soon as I finish the bachelor degree I will earn some job experience on the market and then, I will try to work for AFS Finland.

Meanwhile my next stay in Finland, I'll make sure to take some advanced finnish class at the language center

but I don't think this would be impossible, since when I was there last summer, one of the AFS Finland worker was italian and could speak finnish quite well, since he has been in Finland for about 5 years. So if I manage to work there, it will be fun!

I'm up for pretty much anything, as long as one day I can find a job that suits me better. but it is only understandable that at first you need to work in a less interesting place because you have to be able to speak the language a bit more in order to get a better job. but I think at least in international company, people should be able to get a job if they don't master perfectly finnish.
