Unemployment Assistance

If you are unemployed you may be eligible for assistance from TE-palvelut. They can assist with job searches, CV preparation and provide information on things like having overseas qualifications recognised in Finland.

They may also link you with Finnish classes or subsidise approved classes.

You may be required to attend an interview and provide ID. You may have an interpreter at the meeting. You may also be asked to sit a¬†Finnish language test. It doesn’t matter if you don’t speak any Finnish, they just need to assess your level should you enrol in classes.

Some people will also be eligible for unemployment assistance in form of a payment from Kela or unemployment fund. The TE office can help you apply for this.
