Scandinavian Career Week

 

November 23-27, 2020

reaserch centers

 

Scandinavian organizational culture is famous for providing steady employment, good salaries, and positive company culture. No wonder it is regarded as exemplary and it would be hard to dispute this claim. Equality at the workplace is conducive to creating a good work environment, while flatter organizational structures facilitate better management.

Remote working and uncertain employment prospects, which have become a part of the “new normal”, have changed the way many companies operate. How do Scandinavian organizations deal with this new situation?

You are invited to participate in the Scandinavian Career Week where we will present good practices followed by Scandinavian companies and career prospects available on the Polish and Scandinavian job market. Our students and graduates will also share their opinions and experience of working at Scandinavian companies. Additionally, we will look at job opportunities available for cultural anthropologists and graduates of other study programs.

This year, due to the sanitary restrictions imposed by the pandemic, the Scandinavian Career Week will take place online. Please join us for lectures, workshops, and panel discussions. Together, we will try to answer questions about achieving work-life balance in the era, when our homes have also become our work places.
Looking forward to seeing you at the Scandinavian Career Week!

Since 2018, the Scandinavian Career Week has been organized under the auspices of the Embassy of Norway and the Embassy of Sweden in Poland as well as the Scandinavian-Polish Chamber of Commerce (SPCC).

Professor Mirosław Filiciak
Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences in Warsaw, SWPS University

Objective

The goal of the event is to provide a platform for networking for students of SWPS University and Scandinavian employers. We want to help students to learn more about future career prospects in the context of Scandinavian studies and Scandinavian work culture.
