JobsinStockholm.com has become the go-to site for English speakers in Sweden seeking professional jobs.
November 12, 2007 (Halmstad, Sweden) Over 10,000 visitors a month turn to JobsinStockholm.com looking for professional English speaking jobs in Sweden after only one year since its launch as part of the JobsinHubs.com network. Successfully filling a badly ignored niche was the goal of JobsinStockholm.com. “I know how hard it is to settle into a new country”, says general manager Adrianne George, “so I wanted to make a difference in the expat community”.JobsinStockholm.com has become a life line for current and want to be expats in Sweden.
“These sites (www.jobsinstockholm.com and www.jobsincopenhagen.com) are great by the way, by far the best resource for English speaking professionals looking for a career change”, says user Joe Eagan.
“As someone who is actively trying to find a job in Sweden (preferably Stockholm) the JIS website has been invaluable as it can be frustrating trawling through other sites to find job opportunities, says user Corin Huke.
Institutions including foreign embassies, the Swedish employment agency, women’s clubs, universities, social clubs, relocation companies and businesses that provide services to expatriates around the world have linked to JobsinStockholm.com in order to better serve their members and website users. The success of JobsinStockholm.com is also a result of providing Swedish-based companies good candidates for positions that require English speakers. “…we did get a number of good candidates from your website and will definitely use your site the next time we are recruiting people”, promised Alexander Hughes.
“…we’ve received a number of qualified candidates through JobsinStockholm.com. We’ll continue to keep the service in mind for future openings, says the Stockholm Environment Institute.
During the past year JobsinStockholm.com has opened a shop on CafePress and incorporated several social media concepts including the JobsinStockholm.com blog, a Skype chat group, Facebook profile and MySpace page.
