Wondering how to get a job in Helsinki? Need help in starting a business? Or maybe you’d like to get a jump start on studying? We got your back! With Employment Coaching, Helsinki we offer you help with these questions, and many more, free-of-charge.

What does the employment coaching offer?

The coaching is tailored to each customer’s needs and can include following topics:
