Voices of the International Talent in Finland -survey results are out!

We felt a strong need to gain a deeper understanding of the job-seeking experience of international talent in Finland (and how the newly proposed regulations would reflect on them.) In addition we sought to find avenues for supporting our international talent on their journey to integrate and get employed.

The survey is divided into three themes: Experiences and Opinions on Finland Government's New Immigration Policies, Seeking jobs in Finland and Working in Finland. (+ Herizon's recommendations for the Government and employers.)

We want to thank all the 147 people who took their time to share their experiences.

The power of mentorship

There is power and transformative potential in mentorship and the impact that sharing knowledge can bring. Therefore, with excitement, we announce the launch of the Herizon Mentorship Program, designed exclusively for our community members.

Our handpicked mentors (12 in total now!), representing various fields, are here to guide our community members through their job search journey in Finland or their early steps in the Finnish work industry.

Psst. if you'd like to become a mentor, please don't hesitate to send us an email to hello@herizon.io.

🎤 Our founder Mari is invited to speak at Diversify Nordics Summit in Oslo on 29th of September.

Investor of the Year in the Nordic Women in Tech Awards 2022 and Diversity Role Model of the Year in the Nordic Startup Awards 2023... the list keeps on going. We're thrilled that Mari continues to spread the important message of diversifying the tech scene in the Nordics, and in September, she will have the opportunity to step onto a stage in Oslo and share her message.

If you're attending the summit, don't hesitate to go and say hello to her! 👋

We spent a wonderful day at the Herizon community picnic in July! 🍕🌞

Under the Finnish summer sun (and rain), we gathered with amazing people to celebrate new friendships, good vibes, and ate delicious pizzas from Daddy Greens – what an unforgettable evening.

Sharing stories about our job-seeking journeys, experiences of living in Finland, and our passions brought us closer together.

Announcing: New journeys for our community members <3

Huge congrats to Evgeniia Kapshtyk for landing a job at Helsingö A.S., Daniela Casartelli at Hoxhunt, and Zeynep Incegul at Kiosked.
