I am student from Latvia. I have last year to study. I took academic vocation in University for 1 year, to earn money for University fees.
Wher i can find offers for usual workers on farm, engineering etc. without Sweden language?
Can anyone help me with the tips or recommend something?
How do I do better? Find job from Latvia, or come to Sweden and find job there?
Where can I have more opportunities to find work?
I know four languages.
I am ready for any job smile.gif really.
Thank you.

I think that your chances of finding unskilled work in Sweden are not good. If you have the chance of working in Latvia I would recommend you stay there as unemployment among Swedes is around 10%.

The Building industry has huge unemployment as a result of the credit crunch

As for farming it is almost the end of the farming year - most farmers are harvesting crops (which is done mechnically these days) - in the northern part of the country the fields will be frozen from october-april and many agricultural workers are laid off.

only after many have been moved on to study programs, early retirements and other programs to keep the "unemployed" numbers "low" rolleyes.gif

I agree with Puff that you are better off going home. Sure try looking for work here but have an escape plan.
