Finnish Dress Code
Working abroad sounds like an adventure to many people. However, employment in Finland requires more than just the obvious Finnish CV writing and translation - it requires thorough preparation. You will face issues that probably did not even cross your mind when you start planning to go for Finnish jobs.
Do not underestimate the impact they can have on the result of your adventure! For example, you will experience the different immigration rules and practices, job application procedures, the selection trends and the management culture.
Finnish Dress Code for Job Interviews
It is important to demonstrate at the job interview good appearance as well as good manners.
Dress for the job you want, not for the job you have
Do your research. Know something about the company where you are interviewing. Find out what their employees wear and then dress as they are or nicer than that.
Dress neatly and conservatively.
Men usually wear dark suits or jacket and shirt, often leaving the tie out.
Women wear dresses or conservative skirt suits, with simple accessories.
Caps, bandannas, athletic shoes, sweats, unkempt clothes, jeans, singlets, open shoes and thongs are never acceptable. If the wind was blowing, comb your hair before making first contact at the reception. Do not carry a water bottle or coffee mug. Carry only a slim folder holding your job application documents and CVs. Do not chew anything.
How you dress in Finland is the one of the most important part of being hired
