Events, Working in Denmark: Danish Business Culture

Book a “How to Find a Job in Denmark – even as a foreigner” presentation

Finding a job in Denmark is often a long, frustrating process – particularly if you’re not Danish. In this ‘How to Find a Job in Denmark’ presentation, we offer a few practical tips about how to research the Danish job market, how to network, and how to balance the enforced modesty of ‘Janteloven’ with promoting your skills at a job interview.

Be humble in Denmark

Job interviews in Denmark can be tricky, because you must present yourself as highly skilled without bragging too much.

Kay Xander Mellish arrived in Denmark more than a decade ago. She’s searched and found jobs at small Danish media agencies as well as Danske Bank, Carlsberg Breweries and Saxo Bank. Kay runs her own communications consulting business in Copenhagen, Denmark. She is behind the podcast series ‘How to Live in Denmark’ and is the author of the book ‘How to Live in Denmark‘, available in English, Chinese and Arabic.

This presentation is available in both English and Danish, and can be directed towards highly-educated jobseekers (as it was for DTU’s new graduates group) or lower-skilled new arrivals (as it was at Glostrup Sprogskole.)

“Your talk had a lot of fresh insights and very useful information.” – Andreea-Georgiana Enache, jobseeker
