Employment Workshop – Presentation & Drop In Assistance

Employment Assistance

Finding a job in Denmark is not always easy – especially if you don’t speak Danish.
Karey-Anne, founder of Welcome Group Consulting and NGO Café Cadeau, the most expat-friendly café in Copenhagen have teamed up to hold weekly employment workshops designed to help you find employment in Denmark.

Weekly Workshops

The weekly workshops will have a different theme each week, with a short 30 minute presentation on that subject. After the presentation there is time to ask questions, and to work on your CV, cover letter or whatever you may need assistance with in the Café, where free wi-fi, cheap tea / coffee and snacks are available.

 

Free Work Space

There is plenty of seating for you to create a relaxed work space, so you can utilise the information you receive and put it into practice.

Weekly Themes

The weekly themes covered are listed below:

  • Thursday 16th August – How to search for an English speaking job in Denmark
  • Thursday 23rd August – CV Secrets – what employers really look for
  • Thursday 30th August – Cover Letter – find out how to really ‘apply’ yourself
  • Thursday 6th September – Interview Techniques – learn how to stand out
  • Thursday 13th September – Danish Work Culture – and how to fit in (and how this affects the application process)

  2. Hej hej! I live in the states but my husband and I are planning to move to Sweden here shortly. I’m having a hard time find a job as well as my husband. I put that I’m interested for the August 16th workshop. Is there anyway to do Skype or sometype of video chat?

    1. Hi Hailey,

      Yes, it can be tough to locate English speaking employment here in Scandinavia, which is why we have chosen to offer guidance and support in this area.
      Unfortunately we won’t be able to broadcast the event via Skype, however if you take a look at our website we have a number of free resources to help support you in your quest to finding employment.
      Our employment membership has the option of Skype / video chat for the one2one and interview preparation sessions, so perhaps thats something to consider? You can read more about the different employment support services we offer HERE
      I look very much forward to hopefully meeting you and your husband at one of our future events.
      Good luck with the move!

  3. Is this only for residents of Copenhagen, or can I attend as a resident of Glostrup? I’m only asking because I’ve run into this problem before at other job-hunt seminars.
    TIA,
    Mary
