SDCN members get access to:
Career Support Group every Tuesday
The SDCN Career Support Group is a co-working space where you can work on your CV, applications, cover letters, LinkedIn page, etc., alongside other members. This session is headed by someone from Stockholm Academic Forum, who will be able to answer your questions about the Swedish job market, or if not, refer you to someone who can. You can also get feedback on your application materials or practise for a job interview.
Conversational Swedish every Thursday
The Conversational Swedish session at SDCN, administered by capable language coaches is an engaging experience that promises to get you talking! Regardless of your level of spoken Swedish, you are welcome to practice everyday Swedish expressions on different topics in a friendly, supportive environment.
Swedish language courses
SDCN offers a Swedish for beginners’ course for members. As a participant, you study in a small group with a skilled and engaging language coach who will explain grammatical concepts, pronunciation, and aspects of Swedish culture. The course is organized 2 – 3 times per year with a limited number of seats.
On a regular basis, SDCN and its affiliates offers events on different career-related topics, such as LinkedIn workshops, interview training, networking, CV and cover letter writing etc.
Social and cultural events
The SDCN Management Team of volunteers, organizes a wide range of social gatherings, for both members and their families.
Whether you just want to have a chat and make new friends, or pick the brains of SDCN members who have lived in Stockholm for a while, we’re looking forward to seeing you at our Monthly Fika that takes place on the last Thursday or Friday every month, either for general socializing or to discuss a particular topic.
Individual Guidance Hour
During an Individual Guidance Hour, you will meet someone from the Stockholm Academic Forum team. You can ask any questions you have about Sweden, where to find information, how things work, discuss your career plan, translate something that doesn’t make sense, or just have a chat – about anything really.
