The Local _ Nationwide _ Need IT people with 10+ yrs exp,

Posted by: nidzzy 4.Jun.2013, 01:25 PM

Hello,

Its very easy for job seekers to find free jobs on almost every website. But nowhere its free to post jobs or look up for resumes. Employers often don't wish to spend money for posting a job if there is no guarantied qualified resumes as outcome.

Where can I find highly qualified resume with contact details in Sweden apart from LinkedIn? I have many position where I need people in Software and web development and other IT field with 10-15 years of experience?

Please let me know if you know of experienced professionals looking for jobs or any site where I can find resume for free to contact them and inform them of available jobs.

LinkedIn is the best way these days to find them.

In any case, if you want any results, you have to be much more specific (with regards to the expertise domain) than IT with 10+ years, that does not mean anything at all.

PDX,

I use LinkedIn on regular basis. We are into recruitment and I mentioned IT because even if I dont have a particular open job, we try placing the candidate within our network of clients by checking if they have any position within those skills. Mainly I recruit embedded software developers, System engineers, Mobile Software developers and Telecommunication engineers.

Can you suggest other way to find candidate apart from LinkedIn?

Sure, GitHub for example.

Do you have a web page where you list your open available positions?

~~~PDX~~~

Posted by: nidzzy 4.Jun.2013, 02:10 PM

Yes, on our company Page..
http://www.co-workertech.com/

Also, If I find a good candidate but don't have any job matching their skills, we act as job agent for them and help them searching jobs for free.

Job posting is neither free in GitHub nor there are so many jobs posted in Sweden. It's more US based website.

There are many SweNazis whining here about lack of jobs for "native Swedes" - this post is another example why we in Sweden need highly qualified, experienced and techno-savvy migrants to be brought in.

During July, only ~3000 work permits were granted to immigrants, whereas we need twice or thrice that to match the demand to keep Sweden on top of the tech business market!

You are really desperate to make your case, and will twist the any fact whatsoever. Right?

Do you know how you get people with 10-15 years of experience? You hired juniors 10-15 years ago. Corporations behaving like asses, refusing to hire new graduates does not in any way shape or form prove that there is a criticial shortage that can only be filled with migration of people from southern asia, in an age span where it chronologically impossible for them to satisify the stated demands is not the solution, it only proves that swedish corporations have been spoiled rotten. Had there been a "desperate shortage" corporations would start hiring juniors.

Also, if the bullshit that "only the best and most experienced" are migrating here for work, why are swedish employers so hesitant to scrap the current work migration system and replace it with the Eu Blue Card system? Is it the demand for at least a bachelors degree from a real recognized university or 5 years of relevant work experience? Or is it the minimum wage requirement of 150% of the average national wage? Neither of these requirements seem excessive for "cutting edge competency". In fact, I am wiling to scrap the educational and the experience requirement, just replace it with a minimum wage requirement of 250% of the national average wage.

In our company, thanks in part to my work over the last 2 years in acquiring and upselling projects, we have been able to hire 10 relatively junior Swedish and Finnish employees and are now looking to expand in Norway.

With Swedish Kroner sinking and pay levels here not high compared to US/Canada/UK/Germany, it is anyway a struggle to attract high-quality migrants to Sweden - we have not been able to even if we wanted to. Govt needs to do more to help us.

You didn't answer any of my questions, instead you just went into a self-aggrandizing rant. I will give such a superior mind as your own another chance to answer the questions.
"WHY ARE WAGES STAGNATING IF THERE IS SUCH A SHORTAGE?"
"WHY ARE ALL THE ADS ASKING FOR 2-5 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IF THERE IS SUCH A SHORTAGE?"
"WHY DO SWEDISH COMPANIES REFUSE TO HIRE JUNIORS, IF THEY ARE IN SUCH A DIRE SHORTAGE?"
You come whining to the government, the government has increased the number of seats in IT education exponentially. What more do you want? That the government subsidize the wages you pay? What the government should really do is stop looking the other way at the outrageous claims made by the IT companies, a 27 year old with a 6 year university degree and 6 years of work experience, earning less than a fast food worker? Fuck off.

A country who has never won any academic contest ever, who has literacy rates in the same ranges as third world countries, who refuse to participate in PISA after coming in at place 74 of 76, still exporting world-class competency? Fuck off.

Posted by: Gamla Hälsingebock 11.Aug.2019, 03:29 PM

If supposed wonderfully gifted people with cutting edge tech savvy leave a country for foreign employment, isn't it because they could not be gainfully employed at home???

Posted by: gsurya 11.Aug.2019, 06:43 PM

Yes, of course! India has too many people, too many educated engineers, doctors, nurses, programmers, lawyers etc and not enough jobs.

Our Govts and companies have just not been good enough to provide the kind of growth rate needed to employ the population - unlike China.

We must encourage migration out of India as much as possible, which also benefits Western countries like Sweden.

Just like 1000s of Swedes migrated to USA post-war.

I think India has to import foreign workers to show her how to manage and create businesses that would stop this dramatic and eventually crippling "Brain Drain" of her intellectual resources, leaving for other countries...

It seems the Indian mentality can only produce "cutting edge" workers and is not capable of creating entrepreneurs...

It seems to be a classic case of too many Indians and not enough Chiefs!!!

If you look at the recent forbes 20 richest families you'll see several Indian family business empires that are growing year on year. With their population growth they will be a global force to be reckoned with. They are starting business, taking over western ones etc etc. With their vast population a few thousand moving to sweden doesn't really have an impact on their internal economics. Plus much of the money flows back there anyway.

Ahh, how we love economic colonialism. And the indians who keep on saying how they hate colonialism. Isn't it also odd that the indian workfoce is superior and loves work migration yet they have to be protected by the strictest laws in the world regarding work migration?

Absolutely true, we havent been able to create world class products and services out of India, but we are great workers, leaders & entrepreneurs when in other companies or countries. China is far better at this.

That is why migration OUT of India must be encouraged even more, we just cannot sustain so many educated people, the rest of the world need us more.

Eventually, it benefits India too as many returning Indians invest and improve work ethics in India too. Cycle of migration is good for the world at large.

So you basically can't answer simple questions, you are only capable of hyping India and Indians.

As is to be expect gsurya doesn't want to comment when the topic isn't the superiority of India and indian engineers.

Posted by: Gamla Hälsingebock 18.Aug.2019, 07:13 PM

Superiority???

A country of 160 million people colonized by a country of 8 million people!!!

Superiority???... rolleyes.gif

Posted by: gsurya 19.Aug.2019, 10:44 AM

I never said Indian software pros are always superior to those from other countries - but we have them in sufficient quantity to fill positions at most levels globally - that is an advantage.

That is why all major software companies are filled with Indians at all levels and even Sweden is looking to attract Indian techies in more numbers. This is a win-win both for India and Sweden.

Obviously, I am also not the most superior consultant in my current company either, else I would have been made a partner. But maybe in a couple of years, touch wood smile.gif

So by this logic presented in your words, are Muslims superior to the Swedish?

Also by your logic, and if what nativeswede is true about Indians having a larger presence in Swedish tech industry than swedes, like his poor self, then the Indians are superior...

By your logic.

Yes, there is an overabundance of indians claiming that they know programming, that is correct. The reason major software companies are filled with indians is that the second an indian makes it to a position where he has any hiring influence, then he only hires other indians.

Yeah, I always wondered why "diversity", "equal opportunity" and "country of immigrants" is so important to indians in the US, until the very second they get at a job at WiPRO, Tech Mahindra, TCS, Infosys or HCL, then sudenly diversity doesn't seem to be a problem any more.

Any source for these claims?

Maybe those words aren’t important to Indians in Sweden? Maybe they are still important... since diversity, equal opportunity, and immigration is met when an Indian company sets up shop in Sweden, employs Indians, and then stimulates the Swedish economy. You should be thanking these companies for coming to your country.

Don’t be so upset because you can’t get hired due to having irrelevant experience and that your country has a generation gap... hence needing experienced workers, that don’t exist due to generation gap.

I personally don’t know why any global company would set up in Sweden, the taxes must be ridiculous.

Swedes should thank the superior foreigners for holding up their economy. After all, a small number came in and colonized the work force, at least tech, according to inferiortechskillswede

There are loads of senior developers available. Corporations just don't want to pay what those senior engineers charge. Isn't it odd that we never see "superior indians" in roles usually filled by management, where the real money is? I.e. political scientists, economists, lawyers.

Well, Ikea in India has always had imported Westerners as leadership, instead of locals. Even in the Nordics, many American companies have American leadership - and import expats.

https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/company/corporate-trends/ikea-india-appoints-peter-betzel-as-new-ceo/articleshow/63265294.cms?from=mdr

In comparison, HCL, Infosys etc actually have locals in leadership positions in the Nordic region - and have plenty of native swedes as workers, but some on this forum have obviously been rejected due to being low quality and underperformers laugh.gif

Yes, we all know that indians dig up some small percentages. Satya Nadella and Sundar Pichai prove the superiority of indians, Ikea in India proves that there is no racial bias.

Unfortunately for you, this isn't math.

What are you bitching about, little boy?

Sweden digs up some percentage too... nearly 20% unemployment for non natives and nearly 4% for natives. One of the largest gaps in the world.

Obviously, the problem lies within YOU. Not India.
