Navigating Networking in Sweden

Are you a foreign-born woman aged 21+ and looking for work? Are you spending hours online applying for jobs and getting nowhere? Maybe you’ve heard about the importance of networking in Sweden but don’t know where to start?

Studieförbundet Vuxenskola in Malmö invites you to a weekly study circle beginning in the autumn term 2019. Here you will learn the networking tools you need to make your job-search easier and share your experiences with each other in the group.

Dates: 4 October to 13 December 2019 (Fridays) Time: 09:00 – 12:00 Place: Studieförbundet Vuxenskola, Grynbodgatan 20, Malmö

The study circle is free to join and will be led by Janine Miller. Janine helps internationals/expats in Skåne with practical and emotional issues around settling and integrating in Sweden through coaching. Janine has lived in three countries (South Africa, UK and Sweden), is a UK-trained psychotherapist and arrived in Sweden with her family in 2017. If you are interested or have more questions, please send an email to hej@janinemiller.se

Hope to see you there!
