About the event

Join our event for International students aiming for their first job in Denmark! Warning…. This is not your average career fair.

The purpose of the event is to inspire and prepare you for a career in Denmark. At the event, you will get to talk face to face with central stakeholders and other organisations to get insight into the opportunities to join professional networks, career and mentor programmes and much more.

You will leave the event with a clear picture of what it takes to start a career in Denmark and where you can go for advice and assistance.  As a bonus, we will hand out a list of Danish companies that employ international candidates.
