Frequently asked questions: Technical requirements of the service

By contacting you, the employer expresses their interest in the competence you have described in your profile. Please contact the employer directly. It is not possible to reply to the employer via Job Market Finland. The contact request sent by the employer has no binding effect.

You will be contacted via e-mail, and the message will come from the following address: noreply@tyomarkkinatori.fi. You cannot reply to the e-mail message. If you have provided other contact information in your profile, the employer may also contact you in other ways. The e-mail message contains the employer’s contact information.

You can contact job seekers with interesting profiles via the 'contact job seeker' button in the Job Market Finland profile. The message will be e-mailed to them. The sender is noreply@tyomarkkinatori.fi.

If the job seeker has provided other contact information in their profile, you can also contact them directly. In principle, the profiles are anonymous.

At Job Market Finland, basic information on companies comes from the data repository of the Ministry of Employment and the Economy, which collects data from the Business Information System (YTJ) and various actors, such as Business Finland, Tukes and ELY Centers.

If the information appears incorrectly in the 'Basic company information' section, you can change it by making a change to the Business Information System (YTJ) as the company's representative.

From YTJ, the change will be reflected in our customer data repository and eventually also directly in your data. The changes made will not be updated directly to Job Market Finland but will be delayed by a few days.

If the recruitment contact information is not up-to-date, you can change it directly as a company representative in the 'Company details' section.
