Candidate’s story: Ida from Finland, living in Malta

I was in the 3rd year of my university studies when I realized that I would not want to work in that field at all once I’d graduated, so I dropped out and started working full-time instead while figuring out what it is that I want to do with my life.

Living and working abroad has always been a dream and goal of mine that I’ve just always kind of postponed to when I’m older/when I’ve saved more money/when I’ve graduated etc, but now I felt that it’s time to finally do something about it. I started browsing Facebook groups intended for Scandinavian or Finnish people who are looking for jobs anywhere abroad, and applied for the first one that sounded interesting and actually ended up getting the job! 🙂

The job was customer support advisor in iGaming, and the job was in MALTA. Needless to say, I was super excited about this.

The biggest challenge so far has been to empty my apartment in Finland and get rid of most of my belongings before moving. Although I’ve only been here in Malta for a week, I can say that moving here has been the best decision I’ve ever made. The people are really helpful and friendly, the weather is nice even though this is the coldest month of the year, the job seems interesting and the atmosphere at the office is great 🙂

To you who are reading this and thinking about moving abroad: just go for it! You can always go back if you for some reason don’t like it. Also, you don’t want to spend your days in the retirement home sitting in a rocking chair and wondering “What if” 🙂
