Discrimination is everywhere! I think it is all a matter of confidence.

Do not change your name. Why would you? No job is worthy of that.
Look at Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He defied all odds, that is why he is now the Unofficial King of Sweden rolleyes.gif

I have plenty of friends who do not have Swedish sounding names, some born here, some not.
The name is no longer a factor these days.10 - 15 years ago. Maybe. But not now!

What's next, job discrimination based upon qualifications, skills and education (or the lack thereof)?

You forgot the 11th:-

You are not to believe anything Savage tells you, it is far too biased to be the truth.

"There are also some stores in Sweden that sell skin bleach, often in places like Afro hair stores etc.
This can help give you more of a "European" look, but it can be dangerous stuff. So exercise extreme caution if choosing to use i, and do so at your own risk."


You, Savage, are just disgusting human being. Exactly the type of person that should not be in Sweden.
It is sad how low you go. And, your negative posts and "advice" is beginning to show that this is just a reflection of YOU.

You obviously have some emotional issues and it is beginning to transpire in your very sad threads and responses. Each thread is now beginning to look as an emotional outlet and psychological call, only to make you feel better about yourself.

If you hate Sweden so much, why don't should make a Swexit??

This young lady is here to get some tips and advice! Like many other people - but your advice is to bleach skin!?

Soo soo sad.

Get well soon.

Obviously, another person trying to hinder immigrants from getting anywhere in Sweden.


Let all immigrants bleach their skin, and change their names.

You have such solid advice Savage!!

Just incredible.

Savage acts like one demented. Life has clearly passed it by in Sweden, and the Svedallas advice for a Swexit would seem the ideal solution.
Bitterness eats at the soul and clearly it has had a good savage meal.
It does make you wonder what our 'pet' reporter will hit upon next for anti-Sweden news to be sent to the world's press.
Bias is not the word for it - - - although on reflection the first and last letters are suitable.

I figured it out Hisingen. Savage is deliberately posting offensive threads to increase "clicks" thus get more revenue from the Local. Obviously this is where Savage is getting the Freelancing paycheck.
Past few weeks was particularly high. That "freelancing" isn't getting you anywhere Savage?


The Local has finally sunk to a all time low.



Writing false and negative threads with the intent of instigating a hateful debate about immigration and crime, and also posting negative headlines about Sweden - only so as to increase their revenue? (Something Savage admitted to in a post). Smart thinking admitting that on a thread.
You only just reduced the reputation of The Local (what is left of it) by further putting it down the gutter.

Thanks to the admission that your negative threads only increase revenue. But actually, you just look like a fool. Have you no morals, at all??! Seeing your latest post. Obviously not.


Savage will continue posting ludicrous and bashing posts about Sweden, immigration, give negative advise and anything on the contrary because:

1. Savage is getting paid to do it by The Local. As they say - bad press is better than no press.

2. The Local is losing money and now getting very desperate to get more viewers.
As per yesterdays headline about Sweden not having enough "Butter" - calling it a "crisis"

3. Syrians joining pornography? (Meanwhile - might I add, it was a historical event yesterday having the Pope in Sweden. But this was the first thread that Savage posted - just goes to show how desperate Savage and The Local is).


There is no respect, no morals, no respect to Sweden. This is becoming a corrupt newspaper - all in the name of increasing their online revenues.

After many years reading this paper. More years that Savage has even lived in Sweden. I am stepping out - for the simple reason, I do respect Sweden. This latest post (above) shows the an example of the low that Savage and the Local have.

Rather than be a fruitful discussion forum. This is now a filthy discussion forum full of hatred and ill advise.

Finally, I would like to conclude that is by far one of the worst "Swedish" (if I dare call it that) online newspapers.


RIP The Local newspaper.

And lying to a potential employer right from the get-go is guaranteed to leave you out in the cold!

That aside, why bother about the family name when first name is more subtle. There is a sub-conscious difference between someone, for example, calling themselves "Johan Akbar" sompared to "Mohammed Andersson". Think about it.

The issue here is not discrimination per-se, but the OPs and others immediate reaction to the fact that they cannot get their foot through the door into the job market ...and immediately call racism, when there are soooooo many other factors involved in hiring someone, especially into an existing team. For example, I know companies that will not proceed with any part of the recruitment until they receive a minimum of 1 female applicant (not saying they want females, but HR policy states a minimum of 1 applicant regardless of whether they are reviewed or not), others who do the same but with regards 1 male applicant. I also know of many companies that will place their advertisements for a position detailing the role, yet do not mention that they require someone who has never worked in their specific business sector (they want fresh views of someone who has done similar role in other sectors).

That said, Sweden is incredibly discriminatory when it comes to AGE. It is recognised as a problem even amongst HR professionals and recruiting companies biggrin.gif ...there is a past historic reason with regards collective agreements as to why this is so, even though many collective agreements have now changed the understanding of the change has not. The best time for professional/management recruitment is between the age of 35-47, over 50 and it will be a struggle, under 35 and they worry about your kiddie years.

Come on Yorkie, you're better than this.

1. It was implicit that any name change would be carried out legally via SV or whoever.
2. Job market; do you have any credible evidence to indicate that such a thing exists in Sweden?

If you carry on like this then Hisingen's job at the Swedish Tourist Board is definitely safe!

Seek and ye shall find... it has been the case for a long time. The main reason in the past was because Trade Union Collection Agreements had a clause that if an employer wanted to employed someone over a certain age, they had to check the candidates existing pension funds, and if those funds did not match (or above) the level that they should be according to current collective agreement and working age, then before the union would agree to the recruitment the employer had to agree a 1-off cash injection to the pension fund to bring the candidate to the required level. This was one clear case where whilst the unions believed they were doing something that benefited an employee, it actually had the opposite effect in terms of recruitment of older employees (and immigrants for that matter, and older immigrants for that matter as they became too expensive to employ over locals who had previously worked under collective agreements, especially professional). So much so that only in the last few years is it that the unions seems to realise their mistake and many collective agreements have been amended to reduce that clause to an option rather than being mandatory. however, many people who do recruitment don't keep up to date with what is actually in the collective agreements in detail.
