Program modules

Module 1. Career in Sweden – mindset to maximize your opportunities and thrive in the Swedish work culture

This module is focused on creating a better understanding of the Swedish job market, cultural norms and various perspectives on stepping into a career path in Sweden. During this module participants will evaluate their personal challenges and gain more clarity on their career goals and possibilities in Sweden.

Module 2. Nailing your CV and leveling up your interview skills
This module is very practical and aims to create a safe space for participants to work on and nail their CVs, develop interview skills and improve their LinkedIn profiles with the help of workshops and practical group activities fueled by feedback, guidance and support from the side of the program facilitator, as well as program peers.

Module 3. Mentorship and Networking to utilize career opportunities in Sweden

During this module participants will stretch their comfort zone and gain first-hand experience in looking for a mentor who would be able to share their practical advice and support them in their career aspirations. Participants will learn about the specifics of networking in Sweden and will be encouraged to take practical steps to build up the network they need to move forward with their career goals.
