My Career: From Start to Finnish
American Michele finds the amount of holiday time here “astounding”
Michele Pelkonen, USA. International support specialist
“Public transportation here is amazing.”
I married a Finn. We met online and knew each other for nearly 10 years before it became official.
how flexible and concerned for the overall wellbeing of the worker companies seem to be. And the amount of holiday time is astounding!
more communication between employer and employee. I’d like to know better when I am moving in the right direction. But overall, I am very satisfied and happy with my work life.
favouritething about Finland is… I absolutely love the sauna culture! And public transportation is amazing. As an American who gave up her car when she came here, I don’t miss it given how good the public transportation is.
LinkedIn. I saw an ad on Facebook and, when I clicked on it, I saw I could just link my LinkedIn account and not have to fill out an application. I did that. Two weeks and four interviews later, I was working.
