DIVING INTO THE OCEAN OF KNOWLEDGE
The first month in Finland came as a bit of a shock to Adam. Adjusting to the new language and culture was brain consuming, he says. Finnish people also felt quiet at the beginning. Soon he noticed that once the conversation got started, Finns were actually really talkative.
Adam was also surprised by how international Knowit Finland was. It not only made it easier to blend in and find new friends but also developed his English skills. On top of that, he even studied the basics of Finnish.
“It was great fun to try to order coffee in Finnish, and people were complimenting my efforts.”
Careerwise Adam has taken advantage of all the opportunities that Knowit Finland offers. He’s been adding certifications like Microsoft’s Azure Fundamentals to his CV and working face to face with his Finnish client.
“I’ve talked with their high-level architects, which hasn’t been possible to me before. It’s an ocean of knowledge.”
