SDCN helped me to "tune in" my CV to Swedish viewers. My CV was tailored for the US, where you have a very different approach than here. It was also very important to meet new people and network. I still hang out with friends I made during SDCN activities. In my opinion, the SDCN team does an amazing job. It made a big difference!

Juliana Ortlieb Luz, Project Manager, Engineering Consulting Firm

"Recruiters need to hear you or see you to think about you for a possible position. SDCN helped me to prepare and practice for job interviews. By taking part in some events organized by SDCN, I learnt how to present myself, how to enhance my qualities and how to turn my weaknesses into improving opportunities and this was essential to find my job."

Jordi Alsina i Pujols, Project Manager, Energy Department of Sweco

“Staf and the SDCN network have considerably helped boost my confidence, acquire new skills, and understand how things work in Sweden. Additionally, all the knowledge I received from the events organized were of great importance to me and my growth.”

Pola Papadopoulou, Education Program Coordinator, Spotify

"SDCN helped me when I'd really felt like giving up. I totally revamped my CV after getting advice during career group and I got the interview after that. I then booked a guidance hour with SDCN which was really helpful to prepare for my first proper interview in Sweden."

Carrie Greenwood, Archive Assistant at Hagströmer Bibliotek (Karolinska Institutet)

 "SDCN is a very positive environment and it helped me understand how things work in Stockholm and in Sweden. It is wonderful to meet people who are in a similar situation and experience how they support each other."

Laura Brembilla, Key Account Manager

"I think the most important component, though, was positivity. I can’t count the days I might have given up hope of getting anything I found interesting (or anything at all), but this really is a SUPPORT group in that sense. I owe many thanks to the people who were a part of that support."

Olivia Downey, International Officer EIT Digital, KTH

"The professional events allowed me to meet people and their stories motivated me to move forward. The career support group helped me to understand how to look for a job and how things work here in Sweden. And the most important part, the guidance hour, helped me to improve my CV and cover letter and gave me tips for interviews."

Gloria Cecilia Morales Londono, Frontend Developer

"I believe that being a member of  SDCN's management team was what helped me the most, by gaining experience in working within a Swedish setting. It was important to be able to refer to this experience when looking for opportunities in Stockholm."

Theodoros Kolonas, Wind and Turbine Performance engineer, OX2 Wind

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

Eugen Azcoaga, UX design consultant, Valtech

"I got my two jobs thanks to Stockholm University. SDCN helped me above all with enduring this long period of unemployment, belonging to a community, making friends and enjoying life. SDCN also allowed me to improve my Swedish in the Say-it-in-Swedish group!"

Vinícius De Freitas Corrêa, Language Coach, Stockholm Universtity
