Hello everyone, im currently looking for ANY kind of job , if anyone could urgently help me by offering anything or give an advice that will help id appreciate it. I could work day and night and if it wouldnt be all about my daughter id took my time filling up the CVs and the interviews. Though im still trying with it, it all just takes too long. I hope you understand. Thank you.

So what is that you can do or would like to do?

How are you applying for your jobs? Where do you get stuck. Not getting interviews, not getting call back? Have you tried to find why people didn't want to offer you the job you applied for?

Have you tried changing your process of application (some variables like type of position, perhaps geographic locations etc?)

Not much of a jobs that i could possibly apply for, i only see an offers like some kind of engineer, developers, specialists, managers. I dont have a proper skills for that. Honestly, im not a specialist myself, i used to work there where i could like i.e a car washing , windows washing (i did it for about 2 years) ive cleaned houses, worked at the warehouse with the forklift a bit, tried to learn how does elevators and escalators work but i didnt get enough payment while i was learning so i had to find something else to pay the rents etc.

You need to be a little careful when going via agencies, and what you apply for when doing so. They keep a record of the jobs that you have applied for, couple that with your CV, and if the range is too broad you will not be selected even for a job that you can do and have relevant experience in doing, they will favor someone that has a narrower range of experience and skills that match the job requirements closer.

Why are you looking in Sweden? The market for expat is among the worst.

Watzup, I was pretty much in the same boat as you and was able to get a job with a moving company. Hard, physical work, but fun and the pay wasn't bad.
