Work in Denmark

Yes, that’s precisely what many people wants to do. This post, though, is about Workindenmark, the public employment service.

 

They can be found at www.workindenmark.dk or in their centres in Aarhus, Copenhagen and Odense. They offer services for both companies and, most important, job-seekers.

For me, it made a huge difference to be able to get some advice and feedback on my CV and Cover Letters. Finding a job here can be very overwhelming sometimes.

My reccomendations are:

1. Register your CV at their CV bank. Important: Do it thoroughly, be detailed, and update it from time to time. Your CV is your letter of presentation to the companies (and the recruiters!) and they have to want to hire you.

2. Attend their CV and Cover Letter seminar. You might think that you know how to write it but maybe you don’t!

3. Swing by one of their centres to see if they have some free time! (I don’t know about the other cities, but in Aarhus, if the International Citizen Service is open, then for sure there will be someone there to help you!)

There will be also attending the Carrier Days fair, 7th March in Aarhus, 8th in Odense, 9th in Copenhagen.

Don’t miss the chance to get some help! :)

    Hola Natalia!

    Bueno Jordan,

    supongo que depende de qué tipo de abogado seas (quiero decir, que para ciertas cosas uno tiene que conocer la ley danesa, obviamente).

    Te recomiendo que envíes un email a la gente de workindenmark (puedes encontrar información de contacto en su web) con más detalles sobre qué tipo de trabajo te interesaría, y ellos te pueden aconsejar mejor :)

    También le puedes echar un vistazo a la siguiente página:

    http://www.nyidanmark.dk/en-us/

    Quizás te aclare algunas dudas!

    You’re welcome! :)

    I am sorry, but I don’t see how I can help. I suggest you contact the Workindenmark center in the Copenaguen area and get advice from them :)

  8. Posted February 3, 2013 at 12:02 by Natalia | Permalink

    I am sorry, but there’s nothing I can do about that. All the information I could give you is found in http://www.nyidanmark.dk/en-us/

    Best of luck with your application :)

    Hi Natalia

    First of all thank you for your information, is it necessary to learn the danish language to get job in denmark.

  10. Posted August 16, 2013 at 20:19 by Natalia | Permalink

    Hi Vicky,

    You’re welcome :) And yes, unless you are working for one of the very big companies, whose main language is English – and in that case Danish would still be very useful in social relations – it is very hard to find a job with no knowledge of the Danish language.

    Hi Natalia

    first thing, thank you for all this useful information and your presence, I’m a graphic designer from morocco and I have 2 years experience, and really hope to continue my studies in Copenhagen, if you know some information about how can I go there a will be thankful.
    NB: I have already my mom there she lives in Copenhagen for more than 10 years.:)

    Hi Amnay,

    I think the best you can do is visit http://www.nyidanmark.dk/en-us/ (that’s the English version). There’s a lot of information about coming to Denmark :) Hope it will help!

  13. Posted October 13, 2013 at 22:55 by Amy | Permalink

    I think its quite difficult to find a workplace where work culture is as per your expectations.

  14. Posted October 14, 2013 at 15:50 by Natalia | Permalink

    Well, that depends on what your expectations are of course! Maybe it’s better (although impossible) not having any at all! :)

  15. Posted November 20, 2013 at 18:58 by Mavi | Permalink

    Well I’ve a friend she’s I think 64 I’m sure. She’s on her 60’s. She’s planning to move to Europe, she wants to start up business, a restaurant.

    Question, I wonder if English is a language that she may use as part to communicate with others?. What about the possibility to invest and buy a property?

    Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon!!!

    Have a great day.

    Mavi

  16. Posted November 21, 2013 at 22:38 by Natalia | Permalink

    Well, I’d say that would pretty much depend on where in Europe she’s planning on moving! I would guess each country has some websites where one can find that type of information. When it comes to Denmark, try http://www.nyidanmark.dk/en-us/ or https://www.workindenmark.dk/en/Find_information/Information_for_job_seekers :)

    Hope it helps, sorry I cannot provide any specifics!

    Good day to you too!

    Natalia, what do you exactly refer to by “Attend their CV and Cover Letter seminar”. Do you have any specific suggestions?

    Many thanks in advance, Xisca.

  18. Posted December 29, 2013 at 18:43 by Natalia | Permalink

    Work In Denmark (www.workindenmark.dk) organizes CV and Cover Letter Seminars. I think International Community Aarhus (you can find them on Facebook) also does that :)
