Recognition of qualifications

Before applying for a job, it is a good idea to get your qualifications assessed in Denmark. You can get an assessment of your foreign qualifications by sending an application to the Danish Agency for International Education (IU).

Job applications/CV

To get a job, it is important to write a good application, but writing a good CV is also essential. CV stands for “Curriculum vitae” and means life story.

Good to know

Most companies advertise vacancies on their website. However, it is good to know that a lot of people get a job through networking, and not just by applying for the job. Thus, it is essential to have a good network. You can start building your network by setting up a profile on some of the popular networking related webpages such as: LinkedinXingFacebook and Twitter. You can also develop a broader network by taking part in different social activities, some of which are listed under Social Life. Who you know is often as important as what you know.

In Denmark most people speak English, but it is still both helpful and important for you to try to learn Danish. A willingness to work on and learn Danish can show potential employers that you aren't afraid of challenges or hard work. As well, the added benefit of a second (or third, fourth, etc.) language to your CV can set you above another applicant who may not have that skillset.

FYI:  The links to the right that are marked (GT) are in Danish, so you may wish to run the link through Google Translate into your preferred language.

Pro tip: Apply for an a-kasse before you begin work or while you're in school, to ensure it's available if you become unemployed, or when you get out of school and before you find a job.
