Job Search in Denmark

Focus on how your qualifications match the requirements mentioned in the job ad

Your job application should consist of your CV and a cover letter. Usually, you submit your CV and cover letter electronically – the company will contact selected applicants to be interviewed.

Thorough research is a must. The more you know about the company, and how your professional qualifications can contribute to their business, the better.

If you have graduated recently, it is a good idea to enclose a copy of your diplomas. If you have years of work experience, you should only enclose diplomas if requested in the job ad.

Most employers decide whether you are an interesting candidate within minutes. This means that both your application and CV must be well written and to the point.
