Clear answer - yes, they do! Join this webinar to get inspired in your continued job search process.

It is a fact that the COVID-19 pandemic has a large negative impact on economic activity, and has changed the job market overnight. The global outbreak and the following economic consequences have made it more challenging to enter the Danish job market, where especially international students and graduates are having a difficult time. However, despite COVID-19 rocking the boat, companies in Denmark are still in need of international employees with high-in-demand skills. The times are difficult, but people are getting hired!
To motivate you as an international student or graduate to continue your job search process despite all the difficulties corona brings along, we are hosting this webinar to highlight some successful job search examples from the pandemic. For this webinar the Confederation of Danish Industry and Copenhagen Capacity has invited two recently employed international talents to share their stories, one company representative elaborating on the current situation from the businesses perspecitve, and one labor market expert, bringing insights from the labor unions.  
The webinar will proceed as such that each speaker will give a short presentation before we dive into a discussion focusing on the themes such as:
  • Should international students/graduates seek specific industries/positions/or sectors?
  • How can international graduates/students keep up the motivation during the crisis?
  • How has the crisis affected the recruitment of internationals in the private sector?
  • Have there been any new recruitment needs due to the crisis?
  • ... amongst others
