Hi, this is Arun Suryanarayanan from Canada. I have recently moved to Copenhagen, Denmark. I have a Master in Industrial Engineering and extensive experience as a Project Manager. I have worked with customers and suppliers across Canada, USA, Mexico, China and Germany.
So far, I have attended a few interviews with Danish companies and they are unique in their own way.
As part of the job search, I found it very beneficial to get in touch with the ...

This is not the case in Denmark.
Most medium sized and large companies in Denmark employ their own recruiters to handle the entire rec...

The responsibilities and requirements or qualifications sections are usually the core of the job ad. Recruiters spend time identifying the main qualifications needed. They map out existing skills in the team to find out if one or more skills are lacking. A new employee could very likely bring missing skills to the company or the team. Therefore, recruiters spend time making sure that the job ad reveals what to expect from the job. The company wan...
Many companies conduct at least two interview rounds. The first round of interviews is mainly used to determine which applicants have the basic qualifications required for the job. The second round involves more detailed interview questions about the applicant, his or her qualifications and ability to perform in the company.
We have decided to share our tips on the first interview round - an interview, which is frequently conducted online. Interv...
