What is First Job Copenhagen?

First Job Copenhagen helps international talents enter the Danish labor market.

For many foreigners, the barrier between them and a good job is that they don't have the basic knowledge of how to approach the Danish job searching process, and lack an awareness of their value in the Danish labor market. Business House Copenhagen offers a free of charge 5-day course that aims at giving international talents a greater chance of getting the right job in Denmark.

The Firstjob course consists of a 1-day information meeting and a 5-day course - both in English.

1-day information meeting in English

During the day you will get information about different services that Copenhagen Municipality offers expats such as Leisure Guide, volunteer oppertunities, entrepreneurship, unions and more.

When you have participated at this information meeting – then you start a 5-day career course on the following week. It is compulsory to attend in this information meeting before you can participate in 5-day career course.

5-day career course in English

The course will give you an introduction to job searching in general, how to write a CV and an application, the work culture you will be a part of in Denmark, communication across cultures, Social Media, Networking and career planning. You will end the course with a workshop in Job interview.
