Why Jobbsprånget?

On average, Jobbsprånget’s candidates have applied for 200 jobs in Sweden – without success. Many foreign talents with an academic degree have difficulties entering the Swedish job market, due to lack of references, contacts or language skills. This is a huge waste of resources.

Jobbsprånget’s internship programme makes it easy for employers to get access to this pool of talent. At the same the internship gives the candidates valuable contacts, relevant experience, and an opportunity to learn more about Swedish working culture. The results speak for themselves, 7 out of 10 get a job after Jobbsprånget.

Together we make a difference!

Jobbsprånget is Sweden’s largest internship programme for newcomer academics. We are committed to opening the glassdoor to the Swedish job market.
