Jobs for the boys and gals

There’s not much one can add to this gloomy article from yle:

Well educated foreigners find it very difficult to find jobs in Finland that take advantage of their training. Unemployment among immigrants is three times as high as among the general population.

Even though legal barriers to immigration and employment have fallen, real job opportunities for non-Finns often fade because of sufficient fluency in the Finnish language.

Around 100 000 foreigners reside permanently in Finland. Approximately one of three is unemployed. What even that grim statistic does not show is how many immigrants that do have jobs are employed at tasks below their level of education and skills.

The situation is brightest in technical fields, especially in information technologies, where the working language is often English. In most cases, however, immigrants get jobs in less skilled fields where there is the greatest need for labour.
