We therefore interviewed CEO of Welcome Group Consulting, Karey-Anne Duevang, to chat about what is being done to help the International Community in Denmark find employment.
They have launched a fast track to your next job in Denmark course that is designed to give you all the necessary guidance and support to help you into employment fast!
What does the fast track to your next job course offer and how is different from others?
Our fast track to your next job in Denmark course is a culmination of years of working with those new to Denmark, combined with my years of working in management positions, both in the UK and DK and later being the decision maker during the recruitment process here in DK. I understand the common errors expats make and appreciate what is needed in order to appeal to a Danish recruiter, as I’ve been on both sides of the fence. Our course trains you how and where to find an English speaking position in Denmark, and will present a clear, honest approach of Danish work culture, recruitment processes, Scandinavian management practices and how to get along and thrive in a work environment in Denmark. We also cover: creating a stand out CV, optimised cover letter writing and how to create an outstanding LinkedIn profile – all needed to get you ahead.
Together with my team, including partner Leslea Petersen, (a communications specialist with over 22 years experience), we will help you prepare for every aspect of your employment journey. With varied backgrounds in business, non-profit, and diplomatic arenas, together with the WGC team, we prepare you for the Danish job market in a way only expats that have experienced the hardships can.
Any new plans in how you can help internationals in their search for employment? What do you think is missing and how can you bridge the gap?
Our new 5-day, fast track to your next job in Denmark course is designed to give an in-depth understanding and practical advice of what is needed to be employed in Denmark. It covers asset identification – how to discover your why! As internationals, we are up against very strong competition in finding a job. Being an English speaker is not enough, we really need to offer the Danish workplace far more. On the course we cover the whole job process, from looking at what hard and soft skills are, identify your assets, finding your ‘why,’ to how to write a good CV/cover letter. We then help each client with presentation skills and interview techniques ensuring that you are able to present yourself confidently and according to social norms in Denmark.
Aren’t there plenty of other organisations doing this?
Currently the international community rely on International House, Copenhagen, for guidance and support and access to support services for accommodation, recruitment and integration programs and services. However, as amazing as they can be, International House are unable to supply services to meet demand. Firstly, they only provide services for residents of Copenhagen, those from surrounding municipalities such as Frederiksberg, are not entitled to register or use the services, courses or information meetings. Second, the courses provided are over capacity, with employment courses currently booked up until September 2019. We happily work with International House and we are able to meet the demand for the rest of Denmark.
