Why those that have attended say and why they it...
"Thank you for the seminar, I'm glad I took the time out to learn these skills and change my approach, I have lined up 3 interviews in just one week."
Z.Ahmed, KTH

"First of all, thanks a lot for the Workshop! I think it was great, because we have gained lots of tips and advice from you, could try them out and see if it works (or that we need more practice..), and of course met each other - people interested in starting up their own businesses. The best advice for me was to structure the talk - get attention, present idea, qualify and close. This allowed me to see how it should actually should be done."
O.Kosuchinas, Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship Weekend Workshop

"Useful course! Like many, I came here with my Swedish wife and was intimidated by the jobs demanding a knowledge of Swedish. Fortunately, after attending the seminar, I have managed to find my niche and have started my own Spanish translation company, I want to thank you."
S. Rodriguez, Lund


"I realised there is more to applying for jobs than just sending out CV's. Since the coaching, I have spoken to over 50 employers and feel a lot more confident in my conversations with them and getting positive reactions to my CV."
A.Mohammed, KTH, Stockholm
"I am now speaking directly to employers and have learnt to network and increased my network of contacts after attending the seminar. Thanks for helping."
E.Austin, Stockholm

"Inspiring and Motivating. This is just what I needed. I loved the part on directly connecting with employers and how to have a structured conversation. I was always afraid of speaking directly to them, but after attending your coaching, I have not only connect with some important people, but have landed my first job. I want to thank you."
A.Helena, Stockholm

"The sharing of information and real pitching set-up, great advise and tips that make your calls more effective." J.Chan, MyVocab.com

"I liked the whole - if you want your startup to make money, you got to be selling - so pick up the phone. It's as easy as that."
M.Svenson, Bloglovin
"I was totally frustrated and disappointed with the Swedish job market. I had been depending on recruitment agencies to find me a job and have been emailing my CV but only had 1 response in 6 months. Your coaching has enabled me to be more active and take control of my own job search. I have discovered jobs I would never have thought of and already had 7 interviews and am a lot more optimistic about finding work." N.Iyer, Halmstad

"Loved attending the seminar with other job seekers like my self to share our problems. Nice to know I'm not the only once facing them." M.Gibson, Gothenburg

"The workshop format was friendly and nice, I found it useful to speak to others in my industry also looking for jobs and share resources and tips. The structure was clear and well organised and most importantly I now have a job!!!!" B.Gregory, London / Malmo

"Being a foreign student here, I was looking for an introduction to the job market and the Swedish Job Culture. This coaching was perfect. I was able to get a part-time job almost the same week and am looking forward to it becoming permanent. Thanks for changing my life!"
S.Rao, Gothenberg
