Jobgration made it to the second stage of Ideajakten. During this week it has been the process of people voting on the idea they like most. In order to get to third stage we need to have many votes. There will be only ten ideas going to the third stage, where they will get coaching and in the fourth stage there will be one winer of 100.000 kr plus office space and coaching. The voting will end the 18 so please before that vote for Jobgration. We would be so thankful if you would do so.

Hej everyone,

Hope you have a great week and hope that everything has gone well with your projects.

When I moved to Sweden almost two years ago I never thought I was going to start up a company it felt to big and difficult for me. How in the world would i manage to run a company in a foreig country? But here I am today starting a company which is almost 8 months old. We now are passing from the phase of starting to the running. Now we have our first customers and I feel that we learn something new everyday. From every meeting and mingle that we go. Like last week for example when we participated in the opening of Somali Bussines Center, or spreading information at Konvux and Hälsingsille. Everything its just amzing and I want to thank everyone that has helped us during this journey.
I also want to tell that now we have a new partner that joined our company. Her name is Emma Johansson.
When we started Jobgration one of our main goals is to change attitudes of companies towards employment of internationals. To do this is hard and it takes time, but we are happy that we have people that believe on us and happy to see that people want to join and help us.

Work, Work, Work….

Work, Work,

Last week
was the first one that we started to work as Job coachers. It was very exciting
but at the same time very tiring. I spent most of last week recruiting people
to work in a Somali center. We are looking for a person that has knowledge about
Sweden and Somalia and that has leaved in Sweden no more than 36 weeks. So feel
free to tip us if you know any one that might be interested.

Being a job
coach means that we need to help our clients with:

contacts and a network that helps them get closer to the Swedish job market

– Help them
understand how the Swedish working life looks like by organizing different
activitities such as: study visits, social activities, help to write CV, how to
behave when you go to a jobinterview etc.

– Help with
other practical things.

In order to
achieve all this we are working on creating a toolbox with different materials
which will help us and the people we are coaching.

That’s all
for now, See you next week

Time for good news…

Jobgration Posted on tis, augusti 14, 2012 13:15:19


This week
has been a good week. We got the good news that we are going to be Jobcoaches
contracted from the Employment office. This means that we can start having our
first incomes. That feels great. We have been signing the contract and
completing our application on the website. We have also started to search for
the first ones that we are going to help find a job. I have been putting
posters around Lund and hope people will contact us. A sample of our poster:

Planning for the next months…..

Jobgration Posted on tis, augusti 07, 2012 10:39:48

In my last post
I talked about validation, the process and the time needed to validate a
diploma in Sweden. I researched a bit more about this during this week and now
I am in contact with a researcher that has made a study about validation. I
will meet her this week and she is happy to share with us her findings. I will
post some of them here next week, I am sure it is going to be very interesting.
For many people the summer holidays soon will be finished and work will start
again. We have been planning on how we will proceed in the coming months. Some
of the things we need to do are:

2 people to employ for Herbet Felix Institute during September

in in the job fair Arkad that LTH organizes and as well organize workshops for
the international students at LTH

will also participate at FARAD, another fair organized by the technique

meetings with different HR responsible in companies that are interested to employee

As you see the
month look intensive but it is better to have a lot to do then nothing J. Working under stress motivates me more.

The importance of being motivated…

Jobgration Posted on mån, juli 30, 2012 22:50:07

The week
that I just left behind was one of the hardest ones to concentrate at work. It
was the first week in such a long time when I felt that summer had really come
to Sweden. It was impossible to concentrate when at the same time people were
running to the beach. So I took time to
motivate myself by reading different articles and methods that could make our business
idea work better. I was reading a lot about validation. How does it work, how
long it takes, and different articles written about this theme. Validation of the diploma is one of the major
problems for many internationals that live in Sweden. For some reason it takes
so long time to validate a diploma into the Swedish system, and in
order to better help our candidates, we need to know all about it. In this way we can maybe come up with a faster and inovative way of making the procedure faster. Beside that
working with the website and booking meetings with HR responsible in different
companies so that when the new semester starts, we are ready as well.

Facing what is considered boring….

Jobgration Posted on mån, juli 23, 2012 22:21:59

It is
interesting how everything stops in Sweden during July. Everyone is in holiday,
so even the ones working can’t really do much because every email or phone call
you make you receive back an out reply: On holidays, coming back 1 of August.

For us at Jobgration it has been good because in
this way we have time to focus on administrative things that get forgotten on
the way when there is a lot to do and from the entrepreneurs view quite boring
to deal with. Swedish summer is the best time to face things like that. I have
also been working with the website, coming up with different suggestion on how
to make it more useful

The week
that we just left behind, was a good one for Jobgration. We managed to have collaboration
with LTH, where we are going to organize different workshops on how to find a
job in Sweden for the international students of this Faculty. This is a great
opportunity not just because we get to help our target group but as well we get
to have in our database human resources that many companies are looking for.

One of the
most important things for our company is our website, and that is why we are
working to make it as useful as possible, both for our candidates and companies
that are looking for professional resources. I will be working with this during this week
and the coming weeks so that it is ready when the new semester starts.

My name is
Alma Sandberg (Cullhaj) and together with Kerstin Fredriksson started
Jobgration last year on November. As Kerstin told our drive to start Jobgration
came from watching how international
competence is being wasted in Sweden. Through Jobgration we try to connect
international competences with companies that are in need for those competences.

I am not
going to write more about Jobgration because Kerstin already did when she made
her first blog post. This is my first week, and it has really been great. I took some holidays in June and it feels
great to get back and start working with something I believe in.

This week I
have been contacting and booking different booths in different job fairs that
are going to be during next semester and next year. In this way will be able to register people in
our database and also be visible.

I have also
been working with completing the application that we have sent to the
Employment office. If we get it through, we will start coaching people that are
registered in the employment office.

This is all
for now. See you next week.
