In the summer of 2019, I graduated from (Swedish) high school. The plan was to take a year off and work for a while before pursuing higher education starting fall of 2020. So, how did that work out? Not well at all. It seems that there are no jobs for a recently graduated natural science student with no clear job experience to get. Even goddamn McDonald's didn't respond to my application, there was always someone with more qualifications applying.
So, from June to now, I have been at home doing nothing. I have 100%-ed so many games in this time because there was nothing else to do. I like to go to the gym, but in October I got hit with some kind of back injury which destroyed my ability to exercise, and, for a month or so, I couldn't even sit in a chair! So, I basically got forced into lying in my bed for a few months and now that I should (and need) exercise, I have no energy to get out of bed and do so. (Please, someone just force me to go to the gym!)
Now for the happier part.
A week or so ago I got accepted for an internship at my local library/event hall. I worked there before one summer, and I also basically grew up in that building so going back there to organize some books and concerts will be really nice. It'll give me something to do for a few months instead of lying in bed at home. But getting an internship isn't that hard. If I work from now to May/June, what the hell am I supposed to the summer before I'm off to university?
So I started looking for summer jobs. Hoped for more luck, even though before I had only failed. And two days ago, I got a call from a company. He said that they were basically finished with the interviews but they wanted to meet me this last second. Yesterday, I met up with him for a job interview. And today, he called me to say that I got the job!!!!!! The very first job interview that I passed!!!!
And it's a damn fun job. I will be a guide for the local Cold War fort/museum! I'm so excited! And this means that from now to August when university begins, I will finally have something to do! I just wanted to share because I'm so happy.

congratulations on your new job, sounds great! :)
Grattis Spöket! Najs
Fett najs! :D
Congratulations, that's amazing, what are you going to do for university?
Thank you! The degree is translated to "M.Sc. in Media Technology", basically five years of learning IT leaning towards visualization and graphics.
Keep on fighting 😉💪
That was a nice to read story, even with a happy ending, yay! I wish you much pleasure in your new job you just scored. Congratulations! Hope your back is healing back to normal also. Is it?
Thanks! It's complicated. The back is doing something to my leg which is what hurts. I'm still feeling a slight pain at all times which is probably due to how little exercise I get, but I have no problems sitting and doing stuff anymore. My physiotherapist says that I will likely still be in pain as long as I don't start exercising, so... tomorrow, hopefully.
Congrats on the job! Now, off to the gym to celebrate :)
Congrats! I'm more surprised that Sweden has "Cold War fort/museum" honestly.
there was always a russian u-boat somewhere along the coast of sweden back in the days of the cold war.... or maybe not? =D
Lol we always joke about Russian submarines. Not actually sure why we have this fort/bunker in my small town of 10 000 people, but probably a combination of the worries of the cold war + being on the east coast pretty close to Stockholm is why.
Congrats and enjoy your new job :D
Congrats! Sounds really fun!
Congratulations on your job success! :D
Also, get better soon! ;)
I graduated as a biologist from university (as vague it is, i was specialized in ecology but it was really vast) with no clear idea of what kind of work i could do. Finding a job in adequation with your studies is so hard. I wish you good luck, i went through it, it wasn't easy (i spent like 5 years doing nothing).
Thank you! Hopefully it'll be easier to find a job after university, there's a high demand for M.Sc. students and especially those specializing in IT. My biggest hope is pretty much to find a job like that outside Stockholm because I really don't want to live there (I prefer small towns).
Hope everything worked out well for you in the end!
And I can relate to the back pain, sometimes my lower back get me good.
Congratz! Good news are best news. :D
Congratz, welcome to the 9to5 club.
I hope your back gets better...anyway, congrats! :)
