A general suggestion is that you adapt your CV according to the Danish requirements. This is the first step in getting through to the interview and being considered for a job. It is thus very important that you make a special effort to write a good CV that reflects your competences and skills. An employer will typically scan your CV to see if you fulfil the minimum criteria for the job. If you do, he/she will read your application to assess if you are qualified to take on the job. That is why your application should elaborate on your qualifications and show their relevance for the specific job.
You can find principles of how to write a good CV as well as templates and examples here.
Another thing you can do to build your CV is to join the job search seminars organized by WorkInDenmark.

It is a brief statement saying what your foreign qualification corresponds to in Denmark. You can include a copy of the assessment with your job application.
