An Expat Story

Inna Selipanov is a foreigner living in Helsingborg for a little over 2 years now. Although she is technically American, she considers herself to be a citizen of the world. Being of Russian heritage, she spent the formative years of her adolescence and young adulthood in California. This was followed by a collective 14 years in Germany, between Berlin and Frankfurt, and then came the relocation to Sweden. In all the places she goes, Inna takes her ever-growing family with her. Initially following her husband’s career endeavours, Inna has been on a journey of her own personal and professional discovery. And even though there are many bumps along the way, the journey is far from ended.

Save the date! Join us for some great hints and tips on ways into work in Sweden and Denmark with Pia and Malin from Jobb på tvärs, an Interreg project where Helsingborgs stad, Helsingør municipality and the Swedish Public Employment Service co-operate for a common labour market in the Öresund region. Pia and Malin have great experience in this area and are very knowledgeable about other related services in the municipality, so you can expect some good information from them!
