Even before covid getting a part time unskilled job in sweden was tough


But I will be looking for a full time one.

They'll likely turn into another complaining poster about how they failed at everything in Stockholm and it's all of sweden's fault.


Well that's where you're wrong. I'm going in knowing that there's a chance that due to all of my disadvantages, there's a chance I won't succeed at first.

It's their choice but there is no point in pretending finding accommodation and a job, in stockholm, as a non Swedish speaker at present is anything other than near impossible.


It will be quite some time (at least half a year) until I move and until then I believe I will be able to speak Swedish. Probably not in the best way though.
Also I am planning on seeing if there is any Swedish course available during the month I'll spend in Stockholm.

That doesn't change anything. Look at the unemployment rate for under 25 yr old non native swedes who don't speak Swedish. Do a search for jobs. It's good Swedish practice if nothing else.

Many businesses in the food, drink and hotel industry won't make it through the winter. Even the biggest with reserves and a brand to borrow against are struggling.

just go for it, in my opinion any capital city in europe have opportunities to thrive, and Stockholm is no different, you can always leave if you do not like it here

I do understand where you're coming from however it's not that I can't explain my motivation but rather I didn't come here to explain my motivation, I came here to get tips and advice.


You got that but you didn't like the advice. It's common for people to be miffed at not getting the answer to a question that they want.

It seems to me you are looking for reasons to do what you want to do rather than genuine help.

Like the other's who have answered you, I have been here a long time (20+ years) and I doubt very much you will be at university level Swedish in the time frame you mention and getting a job here is damn hard before Covid let alone now.

You'll do what you want to do but listen to the advice offered by the other guys. It's sensible and good.
