The employment rate is relatively high in Sweden. One reason behind that, is the high proportion of women on the Swedish work market. Women constitute 47.3% of the total workforce in Sweden. However, the financial crisis in 2008-2009 had a visible effect on the employment in Sweden.
Making it in the Swedish work market as a Newbie isn’t easy. It can take about 6-7 years to enter the Swedish work market.
Sweden has a shortage of people in some professions. There is, e.g. a lack of nurses, doctors, developers and teachers.
