Welcome to work life!

A graduate job refers to a full-time, entry-level position that requires the applicant to have a degree from a college, university or a business school in order to obtain the occupation. Often, applicants that are close to completing their academic qualifications will also be considered for these positions. Graduate listings are offered by companies of all shapes and sizes and form one of the most common and most sought after forms of employment today. See which job we currently have online in Denmark.

Salary and benefits designate further fluctuating elements of graduate jobs and are once more determined by the individual employer or country of occupation. A salary refers to a fixed regular payment made by an employer to an employee, while benefits refer to indirect or non-financial compensations offered. Both the salary presented and the benefits received should be more competitive in a graduate position than a student job, graduate programme and/or an internship.

Tip: Get started on the application process for your graduate job by updating your CV and writing a cover letter that is tailored to the job description.

Living and working in Denmark

Denmark is the smallest country in Scandinavia in the northern part of Europe. As with many smaller countries, Denmark has been forced to rely on innovation and technology in order to compete in a globalised world, and the country has become a leader in several industries. Naturally, this reflects on the labour market where there is a high demand for skilled candidates across many industries, including biotechnology, environmental and renewable energy, production, shipping, and banking. This has spawned multinational companies like LEGO, A. P. Møller-Mærsk, Novo Nordisk, and Vestas Wind Systems, which all Danes are immensely proud of. Several of these companies have available graduate jobs throughout the year. The capital of Denmark is Copenhagen, obviously making it the centre for most business activity. However, Aarhus and Aalborg in Jutland and Odense in Funen also house major company headquarters. 

The universities in Denmark offer their students a range of programmes that can help you start and advance your career in different ways. 4 of them are active partners in the Graduateland Network: University of AarhusCopenhagen Business School, University of Copenhagen, and the Copenhagen Business Academy.

 

Tip: Be aware that the requirements for job applications in Denmark may be different from what you are used to. So spend some time finding out what a standard Scandinavian CV looks like and how to formulate a cover letter for Scandinavian companies.

Also, prepare for the way that job interviews are usually conducted in Scandinavia.
