TOWARDS THE FUTURE
We are not aiming to remain as just another Facebook or LinkedIn page. We do have big plans to make something that has not been done in Finland at this level, which actually do have significant impacts for both international professionals as well as businesses or other organizations. Read more about future plans and how we will be shaping the FINternational community during the year 2019.
Nothing works without people. Especially in a country size like Finland, we can only be strong if we collaborate together.
With a strong community, right people and useful technology we have a high chance to make the change
Technology can offer good shortcuts and give an opportunity to build big manageable communities and insights to develop it.
With one of our technology partner, Prepaird, we can provide each of our member a unique skill profile. It combines both soft and hard skills together and shows matching work opportunities entered in the system.
This makes it fast and easy to know people's competences, and works for different organizations in an efficient way to find the exact type of help they would need.
FINternational is an umbrella uniting different actors and forming interest groups in the community. Individuals can join in the groups that help build their own networks and find peers for different support needs.
Have a look at this video clip showing the elements tailor made for FINternational web service and mobile application offers. Technology is provided by alumni software Hivebrite.
EMPOWERING LOCAL ACTORS
FINternational's purpose is to bring different active local stakeholders together to facilitate and update the newest information within the interest group they are connected with. This unites the fragmented field of organizations and individuals keeping everyone up to date on events, trainings, job opportunities which are happening.
CONNECTED WITH THE WORLD
There are many international professionals who have lived in Finland but relocated somewhere because of various reasons. They still hold the experience from Finland that makes those people unique, therefore, by connecting our strengths, Finland can be a small country with a big footprint based on the global "Finland alumni" network.
We all are often thriven with an interest to help, share and learn new things. FINternational helps to coordinate mentoring opportunities among its community members. It means that those who are interested can act as mentors to others community members providing peer support to share their expertise on pro bono or by receiving compensation of their own choices.
THE PLACE TO BE
The association is forming an unique broad ecosystem getting its power from individuals who are those international professionals who are connected with Finland.
The community includes people from multidisciplinary backgrounds, businesses across industries and other organizations as supportive elements.
When a community grows, it becomes stronger and more meaningful, making it possible to see more diversity in Finnish workplaces. Make sure you join in FINternational as well.
