The Danish job market is a competitive hunting ground.
Many applicants find themselves sending out hundreds of CVs without any joy.
In this episode we identify what makes the Danish job market different from other countries, and why it is so hard to get a foot in the door.
Sam and Josefine speak with Karey-Anne Duevang, CEO of The Welcome Group and English Job Denmark and Nikolaj Lubanski, Director of Talent Acquisition at Copenhagen Capacity to get their perspective on the Danish job market.
We talk about what it feels like for Danes and non-Danes alike through the job process, and also how Danish hiring managers might be missing out on some top talent due to cultural confusion.
Next week we will be talking about practical tips for how to get a job (in Denmark) and so be sure to subscribe to not miss out!
What The Denmark | Danish Culture for Expats, Internationals and Danes
Danish culture can be pretty confusing, especially if you are not from Denmark.
This podcast is on a mission to resolve cultural confusion in the country.
Co-hosts Sam Floy (British podcaster, "The Outsider") and Josefine Volqvartz (Danish TV journalist, "The Insider") speak to experts and members of the public to understand and explain why something so normal in Danish culture is confusing to outsiders.
Rather than simply point fun, or say something like "Danes have an ironic sense of humour" we go deep, by speaking to experts to explain why.
Importantly, this show is as much for Danes as it is non-Danes.
What The Denmark is an educational, entertaining and inclusive show where we take a curious look at things that seem normal in Denmark, and get to the bottom of why.
If you've ever felt that you want to understand more about Denmark and Danish culture, then this is the podcast for you!
