Thank you for joining the Swedish Day 2023, taking place online on the 9th of November between 13:00-16.30 CET.
In order to get the most of this event, you should:
- Improve your profile / CV
Pay attention to your language, technical or soft skills, as well as educational fields. If you haven’t done so yet, we strongly advise you to have your CV uploaded in English or have it retrieved from the EURES portal. You can as well add your LinkedIn profile or any online portfolio.
- Apply for jobs & confirm your attendance to interviews
There will be plenty of jobs waiting for you on the platform. Browse through these vacancies and apply as soon as possible to those matching your skills and expectations. Uploading your CV is not enough, the employer can only view your profile/ CV when you apply for their jobs.
Companies may also invite you for one or more online interviews, to take place before, on or after the event day.
In case you are pre-selected, you will get a notification by the employer(s) on possible time slots for the interview, to which you should answer as quickly as possible.
If you have already applied, you might have some invitations pending your confirmation. Please check on a regular basis.
Before the event we will invite registered participants to an information meeting (pre-sessions) to learn more about Sweden and the participating employers. This will be done on:
Starting in October at least once or a week until 7th November.
- Time schedule available in September

A cared personal look is important (even if the interview is online) and a good level of English combined with a positive attitude, will prove highly beneficial.

- PC, laptop, tablet / iPad or another mobile device plus a headset with a microphone and a webcam;

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:
- the basic EU labour market accessing principles for different non-EU country nationals,
- the EU Immigration Portal
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.
