Describe how your qualifications match the requirements mentioned in the job ad
Your application for a job is important. It is most likely your first point of contact with the company or organisation you wish to work for.
Your job application should consist of your CV and a cover letter.

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 such documents if it is requested in the job ad.
Most employers decide whether or not you are an interesting candidate within minutes. This means both your application and CV must be well written and to the point.
Use your network
Many jobs are never advertised. A lot of hiring takes place via personal networks.
Start with your personal network. You may have friends, colleagues or acquaintances with contacts in Denmark who can pave the way for a job interview.
Another idea is to make use of expatriate networks, or contact relevant organisations or even workplaces for good advice.

It is common to approach a Danish employer you would like to work for by sending an unsolicited application. Most employers appreciate the interest and are willing to consider your application and skills if they are relevant, even though they do not have job openings.
