Dont forget you can speak other languages. English + arabic? Middle east is a market practically no Finnish businesses have experience, except: construction & civil engineering. Contact SRV Viitoset, NCC, Skanska and other construction contractors.

well if you have a business admin degree i feel you should find a post in ANY field, and your language skills should be a plus. For example in Nokia the business language is English. All company documents are in English.

of course if you are in finland as a student and do not have working permit I see why you are looking for a service job.
I think it is very difficult for foreigners here, even if they can speak Finnish and have working experience already. Good luck Ahmed. Dont give up!
