Looking for a job is something you can practice and learn. Job search skills include a range of knowledge and skills. They are things you should know, understand or be able to do if you are looking for a job in Finland.
There are 6 areas of job search skills: 1) job search channels, 2) job search tools, 3) informaton about working life, 4) your skills, 5) language skills and 6) an active and positive attitude.
