    Many immigrants who come to Sweden are offered an introduction program. This is supposed to allow the individual to develop the skills he or she needs to be able to enter the Swedish labor market. With a unique Swedish dataset, containing information on introduction activities, we investigate the impact of different introduction activities on the immigrants’ employment probability, in a short-run perspective. Our basic findings are that some activities, such as labor market practice, have a positive effect, while other activities do not seem to have any impact or even negative effect on the individuals’ probabilities of getting a job.
