The demographics of the people of Northeast Iceland is similar to the nation's as a whole. Roughly 28% have received tertiary education and the labour force is equally hard working - albeit normally associated with less stress, in comparison with Reykjavík's city atmosphere. International companies are already established in the region (e.g. TDK and PCC) and together with the University of Akureyri (UNAK) they provide a certain synergy in the existing busy work culture. Check out UNAK's graduate student statistics here.

Various employment services are provided by the Directorate of Labour. Hopefully you find your perfect employer there, or elsewhere, but note that he or she needs to be treated well at your interesting workplace and most definitely according to the workforce obligations.
