Hello folks,

I have prior experience as a repair man in the U.S. I am living in the Lund area and I can offer my services in the Lund/Malmo and areas in between or in close range (small towns south of Helsingborg). I can fix/replace door handles, locks, hinges, the door itself, cabinets, knobs, window cranks, resealing bath tubs, sinks, replace faucets, light fixtures, electrical outlets, yard maintenance, bicycle repair, and other general repairs needed in and around the house/apartment. Send me a message and we can talk about what is needed and come up with a fair price.

I can also provide services for English or Spanish proof reading, editing, or any other language assistance (in English or Spanish).

I am currently searching for work but since I recently moved to Sweden and don't speak the language yet, it's been a bit difficult to find. Therefore, I am leveraging my abilities to earn a bit of income as I continue my job hunt. The job I left behind in the US was of a mortgage underwriter. I have a lot of mortgage experience and a finance degree, but also customer service experience in retail/food industry from my college days.

Also, if anyone knows of a place that is looking for help or employees with what I described, please let me know and I'll contact them.
Thanks, y'all.

If I may offer you some advice it would be to try to find ppl from your home country, US or to connect with ppl who speak the same languages. I'm sure you already know that networking is very important but in Sweden it's the only way to find a job. At least that's my experience.
Also look for spanish speaking expat groups on Facebook.
I hope you'll find work soon... After all Swedes are crazy for Americans :-)

Thank you for the tip electric_magnetic. Networking seems to be key in Sweden and I will keep working on it.
