So, if you are planning to visit Finland, be aware that the borders will soon open to arrivals from more countries and you could be subject to the covid test if arriving from a country with more than 25 coronavirus infections per 100,000 inhabitants.

On the other hand, there is some exciting news from Finland: the country is launching a project to collect speech samples from Finnish speakers to develop a voice-recognition technology. 

Isn’t it so innovative and cutting-edge, just like the Finnish job market? 

🔊 And a success story from Finland: Supermetrics, a Helsinki-based software and data integration company, raised €40 million, led by Highland Europe with participation from IVP. 👏

In September, market competitiveness remains the same as in August. It is still challenging to find a job in Finland. But the good news is the chart is leaning towards the ‘OK level’.

While it is at the ‘OK level’ for Software Engineering professionals to find a job in Finland, (Tech) Project Management experts may find it difficult to get their dream position nowadays. 

On the other hand, it has never been so easy for the IT & Sysadmin professionals to land a job in the Finnish job market. 😲🙌

As of today, the offered and expected salaries are going in different directions. Whereas there has been a 6.1% increase in the offered salaries, the expected salaries saw a 0.5% decrease.

Estonian Job Market in September 2020 

Estonian Job Market in September 2020 

This article is based on data from MeetFrank Job Market Insights. For additional and per-track reports, visit this page.

August was full of good news along with some great physical and online events for the Estonian job market. Let’s start with two of them: 🎆

👉 The flagship tech and startup event, Latitude 59 took place online and also in Tallinn with some physical events. 

👉 Estonian fintech EvoEstate raised €320K to grow its next-gen investment platform globally.

Even though the Estonian job market is still recovering from the effects of the pandemic, we are keeping our hopes high for a fresh start in September. 🙌

As we said in the title; new season, new updates, and new job opportunities! 😊

Let’s discover what the new season has brought so far for employers and job seekers! 💡

Job Market Overview

In our previous report, we shared that August saw a long-awaited increase in the number of job openings. 

🔊 In the last 4 weeks, there has been a very small change in the number of job openings. On the other hand, the last week of August and the first week of September saw the highest increase. 📈

🔊The number of job applications saw a notable increase since mid-August. Job-seekers are finally on track. 😉

Let’s dive into market competitiveness. 

Market competitiveness in the Estonian job markets on September 17

Compared to August, market competitiveness has become more challenging in the Estonian job market. This could be related to the increasing number of job applications in September (one of the favourite months for job seekers). 🤔

While it is at the ‘OK level’ for Data & Analytics professionals to find a job in Estonia, it is sadly difficult for Design experts. Fingers crossed, design people: good times will come! ✌️

So how is the situation with offered and expected salaries in relation to this?

Gross historical salaries in the Estonian job market on September 2020

Both the offered and expected salaries have seen a slight increase by mid-September. 

Despite the small change, there is still a gap between the two numbers. Whereas employers are ready to pay a bit more to hire the best talent, job seekers seem to be reevaluating their expected salaries to some extent. 💰

Top 6 Specialties with the Most Openings

🏹 The job hunting season has begun. So which industries are welcoming the most new talent?

top 6 specialties with the most openings in Estonia

 

Looking at the chart, it is clear why it is at the ‘OK level’ for software engineers to find a job in Estonia seeing while it is challenging in general. The field ranks first in the list, far ahead of the IT & Sysadmin jobs, which is on the second place. 🥇

Customer Support and Sales & Business Development rank in third and fourth places respectively, followed by (Tech) Project Management. There are only slight differences between them. 

Surprisingly, the last place belongs to Data & Analytics as it used to be one of the most popular industries in the last 6 months. 😎

It seems the Estonian job market needs engineers and IT people the most nowadays. If you are looking for an opportunity in one of these sectors, chances are your dream job is waiting for you. 🤝

Salaries Offered by Employers: September vs January 2020

A lot has changed since January. Where to begin? The pandemic conquered the whole world, it has affected every single economy on Earth and the way we live and work have completely changed. 😷

👉The good news is each of the top 6 specialties have seen an increase in the offered salaries

👉 (Tech) Project Management saw the highest increase. 📈

👉 Data & Analytics saw the lowest increase. This also justifies the point we shared in the previous section: the number of job openings in this sector is lower than in others. It seems the demand for the Data & Analytics experts has changed a bit during the pandemic. 💡

👉 Despite the turmoil the pandemic created, companies are willing to pay more in order to hire the best talent. 💪

What about market competitiveness in the Finnish job market? How have industries been affected?

competition in Finland in August

As of August, it is a bit challenging for job seekers to find a job in Finland. Is it the same for every industry?

Unlike in Estonia, software engineers will find it easier to find a job in Finland nowadays. On the other hand, it will be unfortunately more difficult for Design and especially Marketing & PR & Media professionals. 😟

Wondering about the expected and offered average salaries in the Finnish job market?

average salaries in Finland in August
The pandemic has affected the way we live, work and look for a job. 😵 Just like in Estonia, there has been a growing difference between the expected and offered salaries in Finland. 

The gap started to grow in the beginning of June and then diminished a bit. But the disparity is clear enough to draw attention to the difference between the expectations of job seekers and those of companies. 🤔

🔊Attention active job seekers! Please consider increasing your salary expectations a bit and keep believing in yourself. 😊

 

Top 6 specialties with the most applications in July

When we look at the top specialties with the most applications in the Finnish job market, we see a similar pattern to that in Estonia and Lithuania.

🔊 While Software Engineering ranks in first place for all countries, Sales & Business Development and (Tech) Project Management make up the 2nd and 3rd places in Finland. 

The good news is, although Software Engineering was the busiest industry when it comes to the intensity of applications, it’s still at the ‘OK level’ to find a job in the Finnish job market. 👯

We see Marketing & PR & Media, Customer Support, and Finance in the rest of the list.

This could be related to the lower number of job openings in these sectors, as they might be affected more than others in the Finnish job market. 😷

 

Top 10 companies with the most replies to applicants in July
