So what makes Estonia an attractive place for working and living? Find out below!
|#1 digital society: Estonia is the most advanced digital society in the world, where technology is embedded in the culture. No wonder it is also the start-up nation of Europe. If innovation excites you, this is the place to be.|
|Career boost: Things happen quickly in Estonia. Here ideas are more important than age, and skills are valued over small-talk. Make new connections in a heartbeat, get promoted in no time. Buckle up and be ready for lift-off.|
|Great work-life balance: All work and no play makes you dull. Full stop. In Estonia, flexible working hours and short commute times come as standard. Use the free time for hobbies, spend it with friends & family or just do nothing at all.|
|Clean environment: Want to escape noise and congestion? Estonia quietly captivates you with clean city air, low population density and abundant nature. Make no excuse to stay in – it’s only 30 minutes from desk to trail.|
|Stable & safe: Estonians might seem hard to approach, with their nordic ways bordering on boring. Rest assured, they open up soon. And thanks to the low corruption and crime rate, a sauna is the only place you’ll ever sweat in.|
|English is widely spoken: The high level of English is naturally a very positive thing. Non-Estonian speakers do not generally feel helpless in Estonia.|
|Culture beats: Culturally Estonia delivers on all fronts – we have extremely vibrant nightlife with major artists flown in on most weekends, frequent music and film festivals all around the country, happenings of all sorts to freshen every point of view known to man. And if that’s not enough, major Nordic hubs like Stockholm and Helsinki are just a short ferry ride away!|
|Too good to be true? We do not say Estonia is perfect, but it is a pretty awesome place to work and live. One thing to consider is the weather, for example winters can be very cold, up to -20˚C, but it is compensated by our long summer days. This means lots of indoor activities during the winter. Also, some local people think smiling too much is a sign of insanity.|
