Swedish Dress Code
Working abroad sounds like an adventure to many people. However, employment in Sweden requires more than just the obvious Swedish CV writing and translation. You will face issues that probably did not even cross your mind when you start planning to go for Swedish jobs.
Do not misjudge the impact they can have on the result of your adventure! For example, you will experience the different immigration rules and practices, job application procedures, the selection trends and the management culture.
Swedish Dress Code for Job Interviews
It is important to demonstrate at an interview good appearance as well as good manners.
Dress for the job you want, not for the job you have
Do your research. Find out what their employees wear and then dress as they are or nicer than that.
Make sure to dress formally.
Men wear conservative jackets and ties.
Women wear dresses or suits and pantsuits.
Caps, bandannas, athletic shoes, sweats, unkempt clothes, jeans, singlets, open shoes and thongs are never acceptable. If the wind was blowing, comb your hair before making first contact at the reception. Do not carry a water bottle or coffee mug. Carry only a slim folder holding your job application documents and CVs. Do not chew anything.
In Sweden, how you dress is the one of the most important elements of being hired
