Chiara Loos Wednesday, April 7th at 9:23 am
Hello :sparkles: How are you doing? I hope you are all taking good care of yourself. Especially right now with the restrictions AND the grey weather in Helsinki that might be a challenge for some of us. Time for myself, movement and an authentic connection to the current situation help me most to stay sane. Maybe I can be of help for you during the next weeks: I’m a Yoga Teacher and all my classes are for now online since the studios are closed. I teach in German & English via Zoom. All classes are donation-based for the time being, your body comes first and money second. :raised_hands::skin-tone-3: You can learn more at my website: or just drop me a message :love_letter: and I also will plan something special just for the Spouse Program Participants - stay tuned! :heart_eyes:
Chiara Loos Wednesday, April 7th at 9:37 am
I will have two classes tonight: 18:00 - 19:00 in English & 20:00 - 21:00 in German. Our topic will be “Bones”. :bone::bone: :bone: Join us, if you are curious how you can connect to your bones or if you just want to have an hour for yourself.

Hi everyone, Can anyone recommend any employment/contractor agencies that would allow for a contractor to be put on their books?
jochen.faugel Monday, April 12th at 11:32 am
Hi! One of our participants had an issue with Eventbrite after registering to the workshop on the 15th of April. The workshop got saved in her calendar at 9pm instead of 2 pm. Did someone else have the same issue or could this just be due to a wrong calendar time zone?

Hi, is it possible to register as a job seeker with TE office if I didn’t receive my residence permit yet? I have received my national ID number and I receive public health care normally but I have been waiting for the ID card for 5 months now
Maija Melo Wednesday, April 21st at 2:25 pm
Hi Ester! The TE Office requires that you are a EU/Nordic Citizen OR have a valid residence permit with no restrictions concerning the employer. That's the info I have :slightly_smiling_face:

Ramya Menon Ramesh Thursday, April 29th at 7:03 am
Any idea if quaterine rules apply for business travel?
jochen.faugel Thursday, April 29th at 7:10 am
Hi Ramya, as far as I know yes. Don't think that Finland makes a difference whether you traveled for business reason or as a private person when it comes to Quarantine regulations. But good to check also with someone else. Rules seem to change pretty fast regarding Corona.
Ramya Menon Ramesh Thursday, April 29th at 10:53 am
Thank you Jochen and Maija

Is it true that we are not allowed to work unless we receive the resident permit first even if we have an ID number, is that correct?
jochen.faugel Tuesday, May 4th at 11:45 am
Hello ! :slightly_smiling_face: A few valuable things I would like to share: *Metropolia* has some great courses coming up: If you live in Vantaa, you can find attached info to *two workshops coming up on Jobsearch and Networking,* offered by the city of Vantaa If you are *interested in the Digital Field* you find attached info to a good upcoming event organized by the TE Office.
Kim LaBine Tuesday, May 4th at 2:01 pm
Hello ! I have bad news :confounded: We have to move back to Canada. And we have to go quickly. In letting Jochen know of my status change, he has given me the go-ahead to post here: *We need to sell all our appliances and furniture.* We will be marking everything at least 60% off what you would pay in the store. Discounts available for people purchasing 3 or more items. I will be starting to list items on Facebook on Thursday but I thought members of the Spouse Program might appreciate the huge discounts on excellent items. Nothing broken, nothing stained. No spills. My FB Page is called "Utinni Secondhand Goods" (Star Wars reference for all the nerds) and I will eventually post in FB Marketplace. There are some things I can't post yet because we need them (microwave, toaster, TV) Are you looking for anything? I might have it! I have lots more to photograph including a nearly new sectional sofa with storage (at a big discount), a gorgeous dining room table with six chairs (big discount), a rocking chair, a red outdoor/indoor bench, two LED HD 4K tvs, two computer monitors, lamps & more appliances. We are in Espoo, on the Bus 157, 124 & 124K line, both connect to Metro. Pick up only. No delivery available.

Elena Bazhenova Tuesday, May 11th at 11:27 am
Hi everyone! :slightly_smiling_face: My name is Elena and I am new here. I've been living in Finland for almost 8 years and in Espoo for 3 month. I came to Finland to get Master's degree in chemistry and I got it in 2015. Then I was a PhD fellow... But I always wanted to work for people and with people, preferably in people operations area. I did not have proven skills in administrative and organisational tasks, so in 2018 I quit my research career and started small event planning agency. I had an idea to pick up knowledge and skills by doing and attending on-line courses, but it seems to be not enough to land any entry-level positions. I am tired of working with TE-toimisto because they do not provide useful information, so I seek another opportunities. I would be glad if you can share ideas where to start... :slightly_smiling_face: Thank you!
vismit chawla Wednesday, May 12th at 6:23 am
Hi ,welcome to this amazing group.:blush: happy to connect with you and discuss the possibilities of opportunities and know you more. Let me know if you interested to talk with me.
Raquel Otsuka Wednesday, May 12th at 6:37 am
Hi my name is Raquel, from Brasil, I arrived here with my husband, He works at Rovio. I would like to learn about Finland, language, culture and some things to work here. Ahm... I need to train my english. Sorry if i write something wrong.
Carol M Wednesday, May 12th at 5:57 pm
Hello everyone! I'm Carol and I moved to Helsinki from Malaysia in Jan 2020, when my husband (a Finn) took up a new job opportunity here. I landed just before the lockdowns began, so it has been quite difficult making friends and expanding my professional network due to lack of opportunities. Job hunting has been tough, especially in my area of focus - HR/People Development, as most jobs advertised require working proficiency in Finnish. I have been taking Finnish courses, but it will take me awhile to get to that level. I've only recently started working with the TE Office, so I have yet to get any tangible help from them. I found this group by chance today, and hope that there might be some opportunities to connect with HR professionals here, as well as make new friends. Is there a separate channel for HR-related discussions? I would also love to meet up and get to know people over a coffee, now that cafes and restaurants have opened up again.:slightly_smiling_face:
Sam Thursday, May 13th at 6:24 am

Kim LaBine Sunday, May 16th at 10:57 am
Hi Spouse Network! What wonderful weather we're having today! Can you help me find a new home for this sofa? If you don't need it, maybe there is someone within your social circle who does? • I steam cleaned it on May 7 so it's ready for a new home. • There are very minor cat pulls on the ends that could be cleaned up with a clothes shaver. • Our cats are hairless which means there is no dander or fur on the sofa. • There are no spills and there is no damage to the inside storage box. • It is a Lidhult from Ikea and we paid €999 less than 18 months ago. • It's a soft bluish gray color and very comfortable. • Pick up in Espoo, near Finno Skola. *Can you save and share this picture with your network?* In case you missed my previous post, we're a Canadian family who needs to move back to Canada at the end of this month. We have a house full of furniture, electronics and appliances that we're trying to sell as quickly as possible. I'm going to be offering our dishes, spices and pantry items for free closer to departure. We would appreciate any help you can give to reduce the stress of this move.
Elena Bazhenova Monday, May 17th at 9:51 am
He there! Me and are going to meet this Friday, 21.05.21 at 14:00 in Cafe Roasberg to meet face to face and chat a bit :relaxed: We will be happy if 4 (remember the regulations...) other members can join us! Please, write me DM if you are interested :relaxed:

Good morning! I’ve been learning Finnish, but need to improve my listening skills. I’m fine with when I can read the words, but actually being able to listen to spoken Finnish and pick out the structure applied to sentences is very challenging. What tips can you suggest? Thank you in advance. Alistair

Can anyone recommend a Finnish course that is not the integration course? it is for a friend that is already employed...
Niina Virtanen Thursday, June 10th at 12:38 pm
Aalto University organizes an open online course _Finland Works_ that concentrates on Finnish work life and how to find a job. The enrollment and completion of the course is free, but to get the official certificate and study credits you need to purchase the certificate for 90 €.

Elena Bazhenova Tuesday, June 15th at 7:40 am
Hi everybody! I know that many of you struggles to improve proficiency in Finnish after the end of official courses. I have just published an article where I share all the techniques I use to study Finnish language. I am not a professional teacher or linguist, so it about my experience as a learner. I would be happy if this information helps at least some of you.

:mega:*Business Recommendation*:mega: When we went to the airport, we had a dog crate and more than ten pieces of luggage. As you know, the airport is under construction which means it's a fair walk to the check in counter for your airline. Even with a hired driver, we couldn't get very close to where we needed to be and the luggage carts can only hold a few bags at a time. We contacted the airport and they recommended a porter service: *BMCM Special Services* *Maisu from BMCM Special Services* made the process easy, comfortable and stress free. She has a great relationship with the booking agents and was able to confirm the exact time we needed to be at the airport for our very early flight (0415 arrival with small children is not an easy feat!). She met our vehicle with a big trolley and escorted us right to the counter. She's friendly, kind and knowledgeable. We didn't pay her that day, she sent us an invoice. Easy! You can book their services for arrivals as well.
Elena Bazhenova Thursday, June 17th at 9:23 am
Hi all! Does anybody have personal experience with working with Integrify? I am curious about their business and would like to write, possibly, an article about them. But so far I heard very controversial opinions on their services...
Niina Virtanen Tuesday, June 22nd at 9:28 am
Hi everyone, those of you who are not yet on the channel but are looking for openings, I just added a couple of new roles that I came across. Trying to update these regularly, let me know if there are certain fields you'd be most interested to hear from! :blush:
