Adventures of a job hunter

A great blog about the ins and outs of finding work in Sweden. Büsra moved to Sweden with her husband and explains it in her own words: “My husband got a job in Stockholm, Sweden and we moved here. He is a software engineer, and as you all know they are the new rock stars. I believe in certain countries most of the qualified unemployed ones are spouses of software engineers who relocate frequently!”
