A brand new version of the “How to Work in Denmark” book will be available in Fall 2022, with three new chapters.
“How to Work in Denmark:Tips for Finding a Job, Succeeding at Work, and Understanding your Danish Boss” has helped thousands of newcomers since it was issued in 2018 – but things change, and I have updated the book for the times.
Three new chapters
One new chapter will talk about internationals managing Danes. Five years ago, a non-Danish boss with a Danish team was a rarity, but it isn’t any more. What’s it like to manage and motivate Danes?
We’ll also look at what it’s like to work with Danes virtually – the top boss may be wearing a hoodie and dialing in from his summer house – and how Danes work with their neighbors, including Swedes, Norwegians, and the all-important Germans, who are Denmark’s top import and export partners.
The brand new “How to Live in Denmark” book will be available in paperback form, as an eBook, an audiobook, and in video excerpts too.
Why job titles aren’t important in Denmark
It will explain why job titles aren’t that important in Denmark, how to fine-tune your approach to the Danish job market, and look at whether joining a union is worth it. It also has tips on your first day at work, handling a meeting in Denmark, and the secrets of socializing with your Danish colleagues.
The book also talks about birthdays and gifts in the Danish workplace, decoding your Danish pay slip and your Danish taxes, and when to take sick leave.
It includes the special chapters “Will I ever be promoted?” and “Can I date my Danish colleague?”
