Make a Relevant CV
Writing a CV can be a challenging task, especially if you are situated in a country where companies have a different perception of what a CV should look like and what information it should contain. These expectations to a CV are hard to change, so the best option is to adapt your CV, so it matches what the employer is looking for. It is worth adapting to the professional, cultural standard, and a good personal profile is key!
Landing the dream job in Denmark can be done in different ways. Below are a few example of how it could be done.
- The first way is the traditional way of applying for a job position, which a company has posted on a job site, such as Jobindex, Jobnet or Stepstone.
- Another way is through applying for a job in a company, where you could see yourself work, but without them having posted a vacant job position on a job site. Here you have to be very clear, when explaining how you can contribute to the company, what skills you have and why you are applying at this exact company.
- A third option is to get a LinkedIn profile and keep it updated with all your skills as well as your last employments and former job tasks. LinkedIn is very important when searching for a job in Denmark and can be used both as a platform for the job search, for having a professional network if you are ever in need of a job and for creating a professional profile online that future employers can look over.
