Immigrants stuck in wrong "first job" choice

Published torsdag 5 maj 2011 kl 11.00
Josefin Claesson carried out the immigrant study

New Swedish statistics show that university-educated immigrants and refugees risk getting stuck in lower qualified jobs if they enter the labor market here in this way.

The study carrried out by Josefin Claesson for Statistics Sweden shows that those who have a long-term plan and economic resources to make the transmission into Swedish society have a much better chance to get a job in their own field - compared to those who take the first job possible no matter what this may be.

The study also confirms that those English-speaking, university-educated immigrants have a much better chance in the Swedish labor market compared to those with other language backgrounds.
