In this article we examine challenges and barriers immigrants experience from their own perspectives, on the way to the Swedish labour market, according to life world theory; bottom up/individual factors, which may influence participants’ labour market integration. From an individual perspective, participants identified (1) personal crisis as a reflection of a migration experience (herein migration crisis), (2) the need for guidance and reconnection in the new society and (3) the need for a holistic integration mentoring approach that takes into account migrants’ experiences and challenges. Based on these factors we developed a holistic mentoring model for migrants before they can enter the labour market permanently and wrote a handbook called ‘Mastering yourself’ – an intuitive mentoring handbook.
