It is a good idea to look for a job or a place in education actively and from many different sources. If you remain unemployed over an extended period or if you otherwise find it difficult to get a job, the TE Office will help you.
On the web you can find a versatile selection of information, experiences and support that will help you make choices.
Being active yourself is not always enough to get a job. There may be various reasons for your difficulties in finding work; for example, you may have stayed at home and cared for young children, you have been unemployed for a prolonged period, or an injury or illness makes it more difficult for you to find a job.
Personal guidance or financial support may be needed to facilitate your access to the job market. If you feel you are getting nowhere by yourself, contact the TE Office for help.
The TE Offices work together with such actors as the municipality, the Social Insurance Institution (Kela) and various job creation projects, which will increase your possibilities of finding a job. The path may sometimes be long and involve various combinations of services.
