The main reason why an international assignment fails is due to the fact that one partner has to give up his or her career, at least temporarily. That can be perceived as very challenging and demotivating for the individual, especially when already trying to acclimatise to an entirely new living environment.
On top of that, many internationals experience Sweden as a tough job market due to the language requirements and the rather strict legislation on the market, limiting the matching process of workforce and employers. But there is hope and we know how to navigate the system to grow your career!
We offer personalized career counselling and job search coaching for internationals and their partners. Our experienced job coaches work individually or in small groups to set achievable goals and design a new career path for expats during their stay in Sweden.
Job Hunting Workshops
Are you newly arrived and searching for a job in Sweden? We offer frequent Job Hunting Workshops in small groups for internationals seeking employment or starting their own business in Sweden.

You know that you want a change, but knowing what and how to get there is not easy. Our professional coaches help you make conscious choices and find the confidence to pursue your new career.
