Landing your first job can be difficult for native Finns but even more so for immigrants. While the lack of understanding the language can be a barrier, those who don’t feel like an outsider have a greater chance of getting their foot in the slowly closing door of a potential employer.

The good news is that Finland is going to need about 34,000 working immigrants yearly for the next ten years because an increasing number of Finns are leaving work life due to old age.

Our international team at Finland Today is here to help you to integrate into the Finnish society.

We write news for immigrants and fans of Finland without a strong command of the Finnish language to help them integrate into the society, comprehend the Finnish news and discover the nation’s achievements.

Your confidence will soar after your knowledge of how Finland works increases. Our in-depth analyses and features will guide you to make better decisions. Your network and net worth will grow after we introduce you to a number of politicians, companies and decision-makers.

We help you to make Finland stronger and better.

Finland Today is a pioneering, award-winning Finnish news site in English, founded in 2013 and operating in the heart of the Finnish capital, Helsinki.

We produce most of our content through first-hand experiences and interviews and create articles, which are supported by our strong visual photojournalism.

What we ask from you is your support.

By subscribing to our services you will receive not only notifications of new articles but also exclusive content. You will stay fully updated of our content, considering, for example, that in 2018 Facebook is focusing on promoting paid content over organic news in your newsfeed. You are more likely to catch the latest cat posts than an in-depth analysis of the Finnish education system.

Moreover, we work hard daily to provide you the best content.

You will feel great for supporting us.
