Are you looking for a job in Finland? Chances are you've already started doing your research.
Maybe you’ve watched videos, read threads, and attended events to help you enter the job market in Finland. Perhaps you’ve even submitted applications.
The terms “network”, “referral” and “personal branding” are probably terms you’ve heard plenty of times when people give you advice on finding a job.
They have a huge role in the Finnish job market.
You see, only 25-30% of available jobs are actually made public in Finland.
That means the majority of job opportunities are actually hidden.
I know what you’re thinking now... Hidden jobs and silent Finns, can this be any tougher?!
Don’t worry, I got you.

"There were a lot of things new to me. I always had concerns while sending invitations and messages on LinkedIn. Your ideas are superb! Also, I now know the power of commenting & how I can leverage this to build my network. Additionally, the Finnish hashtags are very very informative, I didn’t know about them. So all in all, it’s a masterpiece!

”Your course is really perfect for the Finnish recruitment culture and it helped me to learn so much as to how and why I have made mistakes in the past.”
”It's impressive that Varpu again managed to create something that I haven't encountered before.
I had the chance to be a beta-tester of the "Get Discovered" course, and I learnt so much about improving my online presence on LinkedIn that I had no idea about.
I have been applying all the knowledge from this course since day one, and it has slowly become a part of my professional life. I'm looking forward to seeing the impact of Varpu's approach on my online presence in the upcoming weeks/months.
I would recommend this course to people currently pursuing a degree in Finland, looking for a job or developing their professional communities. Kiitos Varpu!”
Here’s the deal.
In Finland, employers look for employees under the radar.
They utilize their own personal networks and social media, especially LinkedIn when it comes to work life.
After this course, you’ll know exactly what to do on LinkedIn, where there are 1,5 million Finns amongst different fields.
How crazy big is that number when you think about how there are around 3,4 million working people in Finland?!
That’s what I call an online networking jackpot.
The best thing is that you can use this 5-step formula whether you are:
🔹 just starting your career
🔹 already a professional with years of experience
🔹living in Finland or not
🔹casually browsing jobs in Finland or seriously looking for open positions
This course is not another CV, cover letter, and job application course.
In fact, I don’t speak about those at all, because I want you to focus on the hidden opportunities.
I help you get to know Finnish culture, feel connected with the Finnish way of life and learn easy Finnish, wherever you are.
As an MSc speaking six languages and coming from a family full of teachers, it's my pleasure to show you all things Finnish.
There are over 10 000 happy students in my courses. Come and join us!
