Peer support group for international jobseekers


Group meets on Mondays in Helsinki city centre (Forum)

Do you need help exploring employment possibilities? Are you currently unemployed? Do you want to share your experiences with people in a similar situation? Would you like to learn more about the Finnish job market and explore alternative pathways to employment?

Welcome to join our Peer Support Group for International Jobseekers. The aims of the group are:

- to support and explore the job hunting process, learning about key tools such as CV, cover letters, LinkedIn
- to grasp the interview process and how to increase chances by networking
- to exchange experiences and get support from participants in a similar situation
- to discuss and explore other alternative employment pathways

The group meets every Monday from 22nd Oct to 10th Dec and it is expected that you are able to take part in all the sessions. The content of the sessions will be adapted according to the interests and needs of the participants. Participation is free of charge, but we require that you register in advance since places are limited. Register by emailing carole.kurowski[at]
