The ICT sector needs expertise and employees

ICT experts are needed in almost all workplaces. There are currently too few experts in the field and there will be work in the future as well. A typical feature of job seeking in the field is that jobs rarely come up in public job searches.
You can train in the ICT field at higher education institutions or, for example, through RekryTraining. RekryTraining is training in which an employer trains a willing potential jobseeker for the tasks of a company. After the RekryTraining, both parties aim to establish an employment relationship.

If you need to update your ICT skills, we also recommend participating in labour market training. During labour market training, you can improve your skills in the ICT sector. More and more labour market training is constantly being sought, so it is worth keeping an eye on what training is coming up in the ICT sector.
