It might still be the middle of winter, but if you’re already thinking about a summer job, then there is some good news on the horizon.

The number of summer jobs in Finland is expected to increase this year, thanks to better economic conditions – especially for growth sectors like tourism and restaurant services.

The Ministry of Employment and Economy TEM also reports that more summer jobs are likely to be found in the real estate and construction sectors.

But a positive outlook on summer employment isn’t the same everywhere in Finland. It’s worse in North Karelia, southest Finland, Lapland, Kainuu and Central Finland where fewer part time or temporary jobs are likely to be available during the summer months.
