getting job in Sweden is one hell of a job especially if you have no idea of the swedish language. Sweden faces the highest youth unemployment problem though the Svensson politicians have promised a number of schemes for unemployed youths due to forthcoming elections.

It is not only swden but rather rest of European Countries (france and Germany are worse) except England. Coming from Bangladesh, I believe you can speak better English. If you are a good cook, as Bengladeshis are famous for theit culinary skills, try your luck at restaurants in bigger towns like Malmo, Gothenborg and Malmo...

Plus you should have the proper work permit to work..check with the embassy too...Anyway Good Luck

I say that it's hard for anyone to get a job in Sweden right now, and I mean really hard. 1/5 with uni degrees in Sweden are unemployed. They will likely have better swedish than you, which gives them the advantage. So im not gonna paint up some picture of a paradise, because it isn't. It's hard to get a job, but if you get a job here, it will become easier. As for the pay it depends a bit, in the private sector it can vary a lot. If you work for the state and have a fulltime job, there's a minimum salary of 15000kr I think. The problem is that there aren't tons of jobs for those who don't speak swedish. So learning the language will be very important. In Sweden it's extremly important with contacts when you apply for jobs, if you know a lot of people it will become easier. If you don't know anyone you can find yourself competing vs anything from 50-5000 cv's for every job.

Of course language is the main factor to get a job. If you know swedish language, you can get a job even in a Swedish restaurant if you try, sometimes they need people, but it needs language. Its better to look for job in Bangladeshi restaurants. Nowadays, unemployment is very high in western europe. If You know good language, you can manage a work in any type of shop. It is easy to get this type of work in the UK because their language is english. You can get that here as well but you need language. Qualified job regarding your academic qualification is a dream here. I see many local studetns, they finished their university degree here and drive taxi.

Look into doing freelance work. I couldn't tell you what the comparison between cost of living in Sweden and Bangladesh is, but if you have contacts from previous work that might be willing to send jobs your way, that could help. (I don't know anything about work permits and taxes and what you would need if you were working for clients in Bangladesh.)

Good luck! Which university are you going to be studying at?

I know a few foreign students who got jobs as translators. Check the municipal offices. Some private companys might need you too. My advice. Check the biggest companies (VOLVO, SAAB, Sony/Ericsson, Alfa laval, Sandvik...) Transltion English to another language. Not Swedish of course!

You can select programme and choose KTH. But before that choose programme and contact corresponding coordinator, convince him, then you will have a chance. Many students came to KTH by this way. But Chalmers is very restricted about it. After coming to KTH, I realised one reality- chalmers is better than KTH regarding international education quality. I suggest you if you can manage Chalmers anyhow, go there.Part time job is more available there than Stockholm especially for foreign students who dont know swedish. Ther are more generous for foreigners.

Get ready for a likely uphill battle. Many companies often state that they have 500 to 1000 applications for each job. Often, crappy jobs. I know many swedes and non swedes with no job, looking for work for a year or longer, with multiple degrees, with no luck. I am not saying it is impossible to find work here, but I have never seen a western, indurstrialized country like this before with such a high unemployment rate, and so many people complaining of how hard it is to find work here. Unless you are lucky, do not count on getting work here. Even crappy jobs are very competetive, in my opinion. The government tries to protect you by mandating certain employee rights, which are nice, but the flip side of that coin is that they are very, very, very choosy and careful about who they hire.
Often, if you are not swedish, or have a swedish name, you will not even be considered for the jobs. (not always the case, though,but very common).
Sweden is a great place to live except for the very long winters, and the horrible employment situation. I wish you the best of luck anyhow.
