What is your current job in Stockholm?

I’ve actually just switched jobs! My first job in Sweden was as Head of User Experience at Match2One, a Stockholm-based tech startup. I’ve now started to work as a UX design consultant at Valtech Stockholm. 

“I started a full-time job search, it took another three months to find and land my current job in Stockholm.”

How long did it take you to find this job?

When we moved to Stockholm, I took parental leave to take care of our 1-year old son. After we got settled, our son started daycare, and I started a full-time job search, it took another three months to find and land my job at Match2One in Stockholm.

What do you like best about your job? / what is it about your job that you are passionate about?

The best part of my job is the whole process of crafting the user experience; seeing the product in the hands of the users, learning how they interact with it, discovering pain points, unmet needs, and new opportunities, designing solutions based on the findings, and developing the product in collaboration with a great international team of designers, engineers, and business people.

“Last but not least, SDCN became like a family to me.”

Did SDCN help you in your job search?

Yes, I attended many interesting SDCN events where I got fresh perspectives on how to apply for jobs and learned how approach employers in an effective way. I got personal guidance and feedback on my CV and cover letters in the weekly Career Support Group. Last but not least, SDCN became like a family to me. We all had left our old jobs and lives behind and made a leap of faith by following our spouses to a completely new place. It could have been lonely without the support of a community like SDCN.

“That’s one of the great tips I got at SDCN, and that’s what got me my current job in Stockholm.”

What advice would you give to other SDCN members looking for employment in Stockholm?

I encourage you to go to events, join professional forums, and talk to people about your job search. That’s one of the great tips I got at SDCN, and that’s what got me my current job in Stockholm. Also, ask for feedback every time you don’t get a job offer. Professionals in Sweden are generally very friendly and open to giving feedback.
