There are multiple ways to get recruited especially if you've already gained experience in the job market. You might not like your current job or may be interested to try a different career path or perhaps explore other company cultures.


Rental work - Vuokratyö

There are firms that 'rent an employee' or allow people to work temporarily. These companies hire people for quick and emergency positions in cases of sick employees or a sudden change in the clients' companies. You might know about the work availability in a quite short notice, ie you need to start already that same day you found out about it. Acute labor demands are usually hired by construction, hospitality, retail, and other service industries. Cooks, waiters, cleaners, supermarket salespersons, warehouse employees, and receptionists are usually the type of jobs that are needed for these companies.


There are also rental firms that will hire you for project base work or as a substitute for people in different kinds of work leave such as parental and maternity leaves. These types of work can last for a week, a couple of months or even a couple of years. Schools, kindergartens, health and social industries are looking for professional people from rent companies that can help them fill temporary workforce.


The rental firms will hire you as their employees and whenever their clients need a worker, they will contact you to work in their client´s premises. As an rent employee, you will get your salary in a weekly or monthly basis.


Being an employee for rent is a great way to learn about companies and industries. This will develop your skills and build tolerance in working in various environments and work cultures.

You can also be employed in these multiple rental firms so you can choose what kind of work you want to accept.


Interim Management - Vuokrajohtaja

Interim Management firms are project-based recruitments that are also temporary, but they can last from one week to a couple of years. These are high management career opportunities that will hire you through a separate compensation agreement. Companies hire interim managers to develop, rebuild, and transform their business models to ensure growth, accumulate resource, and for generation change. Interim Managers are practical consultants within the company. For the hiring company, hiring an interim manager is more affordable and less risky.


Headhunter firms - Suorahaku

You are an expert or you're a professional already in a management level in a specific industry but you're not getting any contacts from companies that hire people like you. The more niche your industry is, the better it is for you to know how headhunters work.


Headhunters find talented candidates directly for their client companies, which is why they are able to be agile and courteous. Their job is to look for active and passive applicants. Passive applicants are the ones who are already working for a current company but are looking for new opportunities and active applicants are the people who are looking and applying for work. In order for you to get picked by a headhunter, you have to fix your LinkedIn profile or let them know that you are available by sending your CV.


Entrepreneurship

As a newcomer in Finland, you're able to open a business, but if you don't have an established network, it's easier to join a group of startup. Startups are a great way to know about the working environment in Finland and there are different networking events and incubator programmes organized for tech startups.


If you've already established a network by working in Finland for a couple of years and you know that you are able to offer a service that clients want, there are associations and government enterprises that offer education and consultant services that can help you open your business.
