Information till utställare
Chefs for Sweden är ett online-rekryteringsevent där ni som arbetsgivare erbjuds möjlighet att, helt kostnadsfritt, träffa och etablera kontakt med kvalificerade kockar från hela EU/EES området. Kockar som kanske blir era nya medarbetare!
Chefs for Sweden anordnas av Eures Sweden Arbetsförmedlingen
Ni erbjuds följande:
-Annonsera era lediga tjänster, som kan ses av kvalificerade kandidater i hela Europa
-Intervjua kandidater. Kandidater som sökt en ledig tjänst hos er kan ni välja att intervjua direkt under eventdagen.
-Chatta med kandidater som vill veta mer om er verksamhet och de lediga tjänster ni erbjuder.
Låter det intressant och vill ni medverka? Följ då dessa steg:
Registrera er medverkan senast 1 mars
Registrera nytt konto: https://youtu.be/PobxwCdu8DI
Har ni ett konto sedan tidigare och vill registrera er till Chefs for Sweden: https://youtu.be/n1hniFDyHtg
Om er organisation består av flera avdelningar som önskar delta i eventet rekommenderar vi att varje avdelning registrerar var sitt konto. På så sätt exponeras varje avdelning för sig och det blir lättare för er att hantera ansökningarna. Dessutom får varje avdelning planeringsverktyg för intervjuer och chattkanal som är deras egna.
För att ni ska få bästa möjliga genomslag i marknadsföringen av era lediga tjänster är det viktigt att annonsera dessa på eventsidan så snart som möjligt!
Matchningen av kandidater sker utifrån annonserna och för ett lyckat resultat är det viktigt att vara tydlig i beskrivningen av tjänstens innehåll och krav på kvalifikationer. Kom ihåg att skriva annonstexten på engelska. Erbjuder ni flera tjänster inom olika yrkeskategorier går det bra att registrera en samlingsannons.
I annonseringen har ni möjlighet att hänvisa sökande även till er egen karriärsida men observera att event-plattformen är uppbyggd för att sökande ska söka tjänsterna genom just plattformen, vilket innebär att de allra flesta gör det. Därför är det viktigt att ni fortlöpande tittar igenom era annonser för att fånga upp kandidaterna.

Ni har möjlighet att boka in online-intervjuer där ni kan möta kandidater som visat intresse för era lediga tjänster.

If you have already applied, you might have some invitations pending your confirmation. Please check on a regular basis.
Prepare for the interview(s)
In order to better prepare, you should thoroughly research available information on the participating employers page, their main projects and recruitment needs. Select the companies you want to approach, or who have invited you for an interview, identify the questions you may want to ask and try to anticipate possible questions from the employer.
A professional appearance is important (even if the interview is online) and a good level of English combined with a positive attitude, will prove highly beneficial.
Please make sure, ahead of the day of an online interview, you have access to:
- PC, laptop, tablet / iPad or another mobile device plus a headset with a microphone and a webcam;
- a stable internet connection;
- If you have an interview time slot confirmed – the employer will contact you on the time agreed
On the event day, you can chat with employers and info points regarding job possibillities and other related issues.
If you are not an EU/EEA or Swiss citizen
Please bear in mind that, while you may participate in this event and use the www.europeanjobdays.eu platform for job search and meeting employers, you will still have additional legal obligations and administrative procedures to go through to get access to the European labour market.
We advise you to check beforehand for additional information:

You should also be aware that employers may decide not to go through your application, due to the expected length of immigration procedures related to your hiring.
