The Bazaar usually attracts around 70–80 exhibitors spread over three floors:
- Recruitment: employers looking for personnel
- Education, foreign qualifications and degrees: information and advice
- Business start-up: information for people looking to start a business
Meeting place for employers and jobseekers
In the recruitment section, visitors get a chance to meet employers face to face and, on many occasions, apply for jobs at the Bazaar itself. This is something that is particularly appreciated by visitors from non-Swedish backgrounds, who find that they are rarely called to interview. During the 2016 Bazaar, this section had almost 8,000 visitors. 206 employments were made.
Representatives for higher and other adult education inform about contents and conditions. Advisers are on hand to describe how to get foreign qualifications and degrees evaluated. This section had more than 4,600 visitors during the 2016 Bazaar.
This section gathers the market’s most important players (public and private) in the business start-up field. Visitors can discuss everything from business concept analysis, forms of enterprise and financing to trading with other countries. At the Café Starta Eget, exhibitions will share the spotlight with interviews and discussions with entrepreneurs and exhibitors on stage. Last time this section had more than 2,300 visitors.
Training – Swedish for professionals in Stockholm County
During recent years the County of Stockholm has built up training courses in Swedish for professionals, Sfx. These are aimed at people with professional training from other countries. All these training courses were represented at the Bazaar: SFA medicin (for e.g. doctors or dentists), and Swedish for bus drivers, entrepreneurs, craftspeople, engineers, truck drivers and teachers. The Bazaar is an important hub for these programmes; many people have applied for them at the Bazaar over the years.
