Information for Jobseekers
Thank you for joining the Finland-Norway-Sweden Day, taking place online on the 11th of March.
In order to get the most of this event, you should:
- Improve your profile / CV
Pay attention to your language, technical or soft skills, as well as educational fields. You can add your picture and, if you have one, your Skype account ID. If you haven’t done so yet, we strongly advise you to have your CV uploaded in English or have it retrieved from the EURES portal. You can as well add your LinkedIn profile or any online portfolio.

- Apply for jobs & confirm your attendance to interviews
There will be plenty of jobs waiting for you in the platform. Browse through these vacancies and apply as soon as possible to those matching your skills and expectations. Uploading your CV is not enough, the employer can only view your profile/ CV when you apply for their jobs.
Companies may also invite you for one or more online interviews, to take place on the event day.
In case you are pre-selected, you will get a notification by the employer(s) on possible timeslots for the interview, to which you should answer as quickly as possible.
If you have already applied, you might have some invitations pending your confirmation. Please check on a regular basis.

- Prepare for the interview(s)
In order to better prepare, you should thoroughly research available information on the participating companies, their main projects and recruitment needs. Select the companies you want to approach, or who have invited you for an interview, identify the questions you may want to ask and try to anticipate possible questions from the employer.
A cared personal look is important (even if the interview is online) and a good level of English combined with a positive attitude, will prove highly beneficial.
Please make sure, ahead of the day of an online interview, you have access to:
- PC, laptop, tablet / iPad or another mobile device plus a headset with a microphone and a webcam;
- a stable internet connection;
- a Skype account .
If you have an interview time slot confirmed – the employer will contact you on the time agreed upon by contacting your Skype id.
- If you don't have any pre-set interviews...
On the event day, you can still make exploratory contacts with employers and get advice with info points on different services supporting your job search or mobility project by contacting available info points or companies through chat with exhibitors which will activate on the day.
- If you are not an EU/EEA or Swiss citizen
Please bear in mind that, while you may participate in this event and use the www.europeanjobdays.eu platform for job search and meeting employers, you will still have additional legal obligations and administrative procedures to go through to get access to the European labour market.
We advise you to check beforehand for additional information:
- the basic EU labour market accessing principles for different non-EU country nationals,
- the EU Immigration Portal
You should also be aware that employers may decide not to go through your application, due to the expected length of immigration procedures related to your hiring.
- Still having some doubts?
We look forward to meeting you online on March 11th, and wish you luck for your job search!
