I can't speak for Sweden unfortunately!
The culture is changing (at least in the uk) for tech jobs. Employers care less about masters and bachelors degrees and more about experience. Of course, degrees might give you an edge or look more favourably upon but it all depends on the employer. Although if a high percentage of the population have degrees, then employers will look more at experience.
I assume you are not an EU citizen and require a visa to work? Sometimes that's a hurdle, usually for smaller companies depending on the countries sponsorship process.
Good luck with your studies and finding a job!
Well, I'm in a student visa and here in Sweden, there's no limitation of working hours for students.
So I was wondering what I'm lacking that other developers here do not lack!
Are you applying for part time or full time jobs? I wonder if they’re wary of hiring someone with other commitments?
It’s always worth trying emailing back and asking what they think you’re missing.
Have you got a portfolio too? That can go a long way!
All of those are just guesses, of course. My best advice is to seek some more personal advice locally; maybe show your resume to someone who has already gotten an IT job successfully.
EDIT: 1. and 2. should only apply to smaller employers; large companies will be more informed about that stuff.
Can you please look at me resume and give me some feedback drive.google.com/file/d/1dsIYNngdj...
