What is Kick-Start Program?

International Citizen Hub Lund offers a Kick-Start Program aiming to provide you with useful tools that will increase the opportunity to reach the job market. The program comprises different institutions, companies and individuals that give support, inspiration and shared experience in how to find employment.

The job program is based on 10 informative sessions on how to optimize your job search as an international talent in Sweden. These sessions have a different theme targeting, e.g. Swedish work culture, CV writing and interview tips and even starting your own company just to name a few. The program is limited to 60 participants divided into two groups that will meet basically 2-3 times a week with start-up times in late September and February.

We also create extra recruiting activities with collaborating partners to help the jobseeker get closer to companies that are currently recruiting and facilitate an alumni network. The Kick-Start Program alumni network is for both those who are gainfully employed and current jobseekers who find the value of keeping in touch to share their experiences.

This program is limited to those recruited to Sweden and connected to a Lund company/organisation, as well as Lund University. We suggest you check with your spouse/partner to receive further information about our Kick-Start Program or contact us directly for assistance.
