SIMHE career guidance and counselling help immigrants to map their competences and to identify suitable study and career paths in Finland.
Career guidance based on your needs
We will not give you any ready-made solutions. Instead, we help you to:
- find the study and/or career path suitable for you
- identify your own skills and competence as well as your strengths and development needs
- reflect on your options to find employment in Finland in your professional field or to learn new and develop your competence towards new career opportunities.
The service is available for immigrants in Finland who
- have completed a higher education degree abroad or in Finland, or
- are interested in higher education studies in Finland
- are currently employed, unemployed, or on a family leave
