Sweco – find your future

Who wouldn’t want to have an idea of their working future?

Still, thousands of students start their education at technical universities in Sweden without a clue about where it will lead them. On the other side, employers like Sweco have problems to quickly explain what job opportunities there are for newly graduated students. To bridge this gap, we developed the Sweco interactive career defining research tool: Find your future.

Technical education is not a first choice anymore, for many students. However, for an engineering firm with projects in all corners of the world, finding and recruiting the right graduates is crucial for the company’s growth. Even so, just to create an online questionnaire to motivate students to join Sweco would not be a long-term solution. Instead, Find your future is a track record and database of Sweco projects from around the globe, and acts as a knowledge repository of experience that can be passed on between Sweco staff. This information has specified roles, defined types of activity, geographical and project scale data. For students, an additional layer of interaction was developed in the form of questions & answers about their education, personality, hobbies and career goals. Matching the input from a student with the information in the database in real time showed what a job at Sweco could look like for each individual student, taking into consideration not only education but also the students aspiration.
