Sammanfattning: This is a qualitative study that aims to understand how young women experience the neoliberal labor market through a structural perspective. The study is concerning how women relate to the demands and expectations in work life. The empirics is composed by interviews with young women who’s working within the staffing and recruitment industry. Through the schematisation of the empirical basis we have identified how the women are forced to deal with the positions that has been given, due to the inequality that characterizes our society. The analysis enhances four main themes that together gives us an understanding for how the women are forced to use different strategies to handle the demands and expectations. The results reveal how women through internalisation of the characteristics that are requested consider themselves able to control and influence their future. Thus to be “duktig” (good, capable and efficient) becomes a tool for the women to affect their fate and possibilities. The statements from our participants brings us to the conclusion were we claim that beeing “duktig” has a downside. We suppose that beeing “duktig” may restrict women and allow them to be exploited rather than to help them move forward in their career.
