Smart foreigners queued up for Danish jobs

The queues for Danish jobs were long at Denmark’s booth at MIT in Boston. Particularly career opportunities within IT, biotech and engineering attracted much interest.

60 vacancies at Danish companies and research opportunities were on the table when the Technical University of Denmark, Work in Denmark, Copenhagen Capacity and the Confederation of Danish Industry presented a joint booth at the career fair European Career Days at MIT in Boston last weekend.

“There much much interest in the Danish booth. Young people from many different countries queued up to learn about Danish companies, the Danish job market and life in Denmark. It has been extremely positive and fruitful, and I hope it will lead to many skilled young people choosing Denmark and Danish companies,” says Linda Duncan Wendelboe, head of DI Global Talent.

Among those interested was the couple Glory and Jason, and Jason might have got a job in Denmark.

“Out of European cities, we chose to look at Copenhagen because I did an exchange program at Copenhagen Business School and loved it. Denmark is well-organised and clean, and Copenhagen has lots of parks where my three-year-old daughter can run around and play, whereas the US is becoming a bit overprotective. She has the right age, so she’ll probably learn the language in no time,” says Jason.

Now job interviews await


A large number of candidates were found qualified to attend interviews for the Danish jobs, which will be set up directly with the companies in the near future.

Meanwhile, qualified candidates who have uploaded their CVs to Work in Denmark and Copenhagen Capacity’s job databases will be matched with the many vacant Danish jobs.

“In Work in Denmark’s job database alone, there are currently 1027 vacant positions, but the majority of the talented candidates, we talked to, fit the profiles that Danish companies are seeking. We therefore see plenty of opportunity to match candidates with the vacant Danish jobs,” says Kirsten Thomsen, director of Work in Denmark.
