I´m suprised because I´ve friends working with 3D graphics who has a very good salary and generally I think creative work are good paid. Yes maybe people use you in the beginning because they know you want experience but I think this is something very common in this business in many countries, not only in Sweden. But If you have some experience or If you are talented and can show an impressive portfolio I don´t believe the salaries are low. But yes...contacts can be important to get a job. What I´ve heard Kåken is the place to be If you work within media or creative wink.gif

In the UK it is well paid.

In Sweden the wages for 3D work are terrible. It is extremely rare to get over 25,000krona a month in Sweden. They have 100's after each job.

An impressive portfolio means very little in Sweden in the area.

Sweden is a race to the bottom of the barrel in the area of 3D. If you want to prove me wrong, go and do it. You will find you can't.

Hi

Please could I get some opinions on the immigrant situation in Sweden. I will be establishing a company in the EU, and considering Sweden as I loved it there when I visited 10 years ago. From what I have been reading and what I have researched, it does sound as if there is a immigrant problem arising in Sweden. The crime rate seems to off increased dramatcically, especially against women and the government seem to be powerless and reluctant to do anything. 10 years ago it was such a peacefull and beautiful place to visit, and I do want to establish the company in a stable and safe environment.

Am I understanding this correctly or is it media hype, or bit of both? Truthfull comments would be appreciated.

Steve

A suggestion, try Ireland.

You get lots of freebies for creating jobs in Ireland, such as tax free for a few years, free buildings sometimes, etc.

Check it out.

I'm an EU citizen, I've started studying Swedish on my own and expect to be close to fluent in a couple of months. I've got a friend in Sweden who told me that it would be difficult to find a job if I'm not in Sweden myself. Probably not impossible, but difficult. However, I can't just up and move without a solid job offer, my finances would not support it.

Does anyone have any experience or advice about this? Is it possible to find a job by cold-call emailing and showing my portfolio? Or do I need to travel to Sweden first?

Also, if anyone has any experience with the 3D graphics job market, I would be beyond grateful for any info you can share. I'm not really looking at Stockholm, because of the high cost of living. I'd prefer to get an entry-level position in a smaller town and work up from there.

In Sweden the 3D art jobs are not good. Salaries are very low. Starting pay is about 16000 Krona a month going up to 25000 in the best paying. Coders don't usually get more than 25000 a month, which is ridiculous.

You need to have contacts in the business in Sweden to get a job. No contacts locally, no job

There are a lot of people who have studied 3D work in various courses in Sweden who are unemployed. Companies take them on as Praktik (no wage) supposedly to try them out but fire them about two weeks before the six month period is up so they do not get a permanent job.

Wrong country for that work.

Finland, Germany and Denmark are far better for 3D work. In Sweden it is a closed shop.

I need to buy following capacitors for fixing a lcd monitor. If anyone knows places sell capacitor please help me to locate it, preferably butiks not online shops, I don't want to pay expensive shipping fee for cheap things like capacitors. thanks in advance.

the capacitors are: C261 (1000uf 25v) C263 (1000uf 25v) and C265 (470uf 25v)

Hello,

You can pick them up in Mouser. They post direct to your door.

http://se.mouser.com/

I had to order parts from there for my theremin and my LCD monitor from them as my monitor is out of warranty. Takes about 5 days to arrive after you order.

Reepalu is to blame for the mess Malmö is in.

If he actually cared about anything, he would resign.

Will do so in court - what you are helping promote with your calls for libel suits.

Until you arrange it, just please be quiet.

I am not here to prove anything, just help promote action which will result hopefully in it.

So you are just fabricating lies as usual.

Uh, for starters, he was Finance Minister when the Irish government started softening up the hard-liner Provos to accept a ceasefire so had peace could be established, and then as Prime Minister, after they balked on giving up their arms, he got them to agree to disarming if other parties did likewise, resulting in the GFA.

I canot think of anyone who was more involved in the process.

As for the source of large sums of money from friends and associates in the process, and to whom and when it was distributed,I shall leave for a more important audience.

Just remember that he said that he had never accepted a bribe - what the Mahon Tribunal accepted, so who had?

If you are alleging that there is a connection between the IRA and Bertie Ahern, produce your evidence.

What real and tangiable evidence do you have, that any of this would even be in the slightest way connected with Bertie Ahern?

Under Irish law what you have written is legally actionable regardless of country of origin.

I hope Bertie Ahern reads what you have written and sues both you and The Local for everything you have.

Just to let everyone know that I have stepped down as a Mod having been one since the poster-Mod system started

I am not sure what the plan is at the moment or whether new official Mods will be appointed

So if you have some complaints ... you don't contact me anymore biggrin.gif

You leaving will most likely switch mods towards the negative, the unhelpful and towards the reactionary.

They are causing problems for a lot of Irish in several areas in Sweden.

They keep claiming to be Irish.

They are the Sheridan's, McCarthy's, Keane's, Brindley's, Keanan's and McNamara's.

Or in plain language, it is the owners of hundreds of properties stretching all over Ireland, England, Czech Republic and Hungary.

A lot of them are related to the crowd from Dale Farm. They originate from Limerick, Dublin, Derry, Birmingham, and mostly (about 90%) Berkshire. Most of them are actually english.
