What is ForeAmmatti?

ForeAmmatti is an online service created by Foredata Ltd. ForeAmmatti aims to support especially those in search of work. The open version of ForeAmmatti offers basic labour market information of all 411 professions and it is free to use!

ForeAmmatti reaches beyond labour market information too. ForeAmmatti allows all its registered users to use The Abilitator, which is a method enabling self-assessment of work ability and functioning. It is a questionnaire, which can be completed online within ForeAmmatti. The Abilitator can be filled in English too.

Certain parts of Open ForeAmmatti are in English, but most of the content is still in Finnish.

Further versions (ForeAmmatti PLUS etc.) offer more detailed labour market and degree information combined to skills mapping and other functionalities. Skills mapping is based on ESCO classification and offers over 13 000 skills form nearly 3 000 occupations to choose from.

ForeAmmatti PLUS can be used in English too. Also, some other versions of ForeAmmatti are being translated during 2022. Translations in ForeAmmatti are partly based on machine translation.

ForeAmmatti gives you answers to the following questions:

  • How many open vacancies there are per profession?
  • Where are the jobs situated?
  • What skills employers expect from job seekers?
  • What are the future insights of different professions based on your skills mapping? (ForeAmmatti PLUS)

ForeAmmatti is made for whom?

Open ForeAmmatti is targeted specifically for those seeking work, or planning to change the profession, but it also serves everyone interested in labour market information in Finland.

ForeAmmatti PLUS is also targeted to those seeking work, but it offers more detailed tools and functionalities than Open ForeAmmatti. Interested in ForeAmmatti PLUS? See also, ForeAmmatti Omatoimi.
