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. You can choose to come to just one session, or several.

All our Career Support Group sessions can be found in the Event calendar.

Swedish Language Café every Thursday

The SDCN Language Café is a place to learn Swedish by talking, listening and practising, with the help of our excellent language coaches from Swedish for Professionals. The SDCN Language Café is for SDCN members who would like to practise Swedish together with other members in an informal setting where the focus is on speaking without worry of making mistakes. This is an engaging experience that promises to get you talking! Just as for the Career Support Group, you can choose to come to just one session, or several.

All our Language Café sessions can be found in the Event calendar.

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.

Our career events can be found in the Event calendar.

Monthly Fika

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. If your questions are mainly related to your CV or cover letter, we suggest you first attend at least one Career Support Group session before you book an Individual Guidance Hour. Request an Individual Guidance Hour by sending an email to [email protected]

SDCN Community on Facebook

SDCN has a Facebook group for SDCN members only – SDCN Community. In this closed group, you will find posts about upcoming events and information about different things. SDCN members also often share useful tips with one another, post job notifications, and express opinions about expat life in Stockholm.


A couple of times per month, SDCN members receive an email newsletter with the latest event updates and other useful information.

Member testimonials


"SDCN helped me to improve my resume and cover letter according to Swedish standards, gained job hunting skills, acquired LinkedIn profile update skills, interview-facing skills, and Swedish language proficiency through the language café while making a great network with people who have diverse cultural backgrounds.''

Heshan Perera, Quality Control Technician, Northvolt

"Moving to a new country can be challenging in many ways and SDCN has been a blessing to me in this regard. It not only helped me tailor my CV and cover letter attuned to the Swedish market but also gave my first friends in the city and a robust professional network. SDCN is doing an amazing job and it will forever be close to my heart.''

Ankita Jha, Financial Accountant, Upfield

"Through SDCN I found my way in Stockholm. The career events helped me to get my CV and cover letter ready for the Swedish job market and the culture events taught me more about this beautiful country. Most valuable to me were the social events where I met our fantastic members who were always willing to give advice, a helping hand, or a listening ear. My advice to new members of SDCN is to make full use of all the experience SDCN has with supporting partners relocating to Stockholm, as they know all the ins and outs and cheer you on all the way.
