Support and membership benefits for the twists and turns of working life even in times of uncertainty
Mirva Puranen, Development Manager, Working Life Services
Lay-offs and unemployment have increased during the coronavirus pandemic. Planning a career and maintaining job search skills are things that everyone can influence in this turmoil themselves. If you are laid off or become unemployed, it is easier to get up after stumbling and continue the journey when you already have the tools in your pocket.
How to support a young person in their dream profession?
Anne Rautu, Marketing Manager
What did you dream of when you were 16? What was your dream profession?
As an 80s child, I remember playing the bank cashier. I built an office in my room where I moved papers from one place to another, wrote receipts and gave money to my little brother who came to be served at the counter. It was clear that I was interested in office work, with regular working hours from eight to four, with a sure permanent contract until retirement age. The influences for this dream profession came from home and the neighbours. I was used to seeing the everyday life of office work and it was easy to encourage me to work in the commercial sector because "there is always work in that field".
