Swedes are humble in nature and are generally friendly people. Sweden offers a good quality of life where healthcare is free for the public. However, for expats planning to move to the country, job opportunities are scarce. This does not mean that finding a job in Sweden is impossible. There are many English-speaking jobs available in the country. Similarly, accommodation is another problem that expats face in Sweden especially in major cities. On the other hand, in smaller cities, you can find better accommodation in terms of cost.
