I am a Recruiter in San Francisco and I love what I do. I plan on finding similar work in Stockholm when I move. I am moving in November if not a bit earlier. From now till the time I leave, I plan on networking, applying to different jobs, and doing whatever I can to find work. But as I am sure anyone who have looked for work will understand, finding work/ interviewing is a job of its own. Luckily for me, as a recruiter it’s not as daunting; it’s actually quite exciting. But regardless of how you view this process, it posses a level of difficulty especially when 1) you don’t know the market well, 2) you don’t have a network that you can use, and 3) you don’t know the language.
I refuse to go into this process of finding work with a negative mindset. It can be a fun experience if you allow it to be. I want to make sure I find the right role and work culture, and I don’t want fear to make me compromise for anything less. For those who are going through the same thing, stay positive.
I will keep you posted on my endeavor and any advice you have, please do not hesitate to reach out! And of course, if you have questions please comment or message me.
