Abstract [en]

This qualitative interview-based study investigated the current situation on the Swedish labour market for highly educated immigrants having acquired their education from their respective home countries. The aim was to capture the immigrants’ experiences on the Swedish labour market regarding the challenges in finding a job that is on par with their level of education. The study aimed to identify what immigrants viewed as the main obstacles and possibilities in doing so. Interviews were conducted with eight immigrants currently living in Sweden, most of whom had immigrated from countries in Asia. The main obstacles according to the immigrants were language barriers, lack of an adequate social network, ethnic discrimination and difficulties in having their foreign education verified by Swedish authorities. There was a sense of hopelessness regarding possibilities, but most of the interviewees wanted to be given the possibility to show their expertise via internships. Some of them felt that a move to yet another country was their only and last resort.
