HIC Talks: Welcome to Helsingborg
Preparing for the Swedish job market
Show Notes

What challenges do foreigners face when they look for work in Sweden and how should they approach their job search?

We meet Ali Alabdallah, a Syrian journalist who came to Sweden in 2013. Starting from scratch, he got to grips with the language, applied his previous experience and qualifications, and drew on his positive outlook to find work.

Ali has gone on to write two books about job seeking and diversity in the workplace, and now works as a careers coach with Asuria AB, a company working with job seekers to help them fulfil their potential.

We hope you enjoy our conversation!

HIC Talks: Welcome to Helsingborg is a Vision Fund project.

Due to the pandemic, we are currently conducting all our interviews over Zoom.
