It was time to get down (under) to business!
When thinking back to that moment, I remember the words from Antti (Antti Niemelä, Deputy Head of Mission), during my Skype interview in January 2017 at 7am in the morning, "Here at the Embassy you have to be ready every day to learn something new and be prepared for everything". And of course I was ready for the future challenges. The first step was already taken when I left everything behind in Finland for a while and got ready for my new hometown called Canberra.
as Finland celebrates its centenary of independence during 2017, the main event would be the Finnish Crazy Games & Open Doors for Everything Finnish on September 23-24. I have to admit that
Is there anything more motivating than being a key team member?
I am very satisfied with my job and always eager to work harder to excel in my career.
The staff here in Canberra earns my biggest personal thanks
Thank you for making me smile every day at work. Much of our team success is due to your skill and hard work. Your positive attitude cheers up the atmosphere in our office environment. You simply have lots of ideas and talents. Thanks a lot. You are the best.
