Join this event for internationals looking for job opportunities in Denmark

On October 12th, we are hosting the first career fair in a physical format this year at the host's headquarters in Lyngby. The event is organized to assist students and young professionals in networking with Danish companies and connect them through 1-1  matchmaking sessions*. Career fairs are a great way to get a leg up with companies that interest you.

The physical format will enhance the experience, allowing you to:

  • Discover new career opportunities. Get inspired and learn more about all the participating companies.
  • Meet with employers. Interact with recruiters and make an impression. Remember to bring mini business cards for sharing.
  • Increase your professional network. Connect with company representatives and other young professionals.
  • Take action. Bring your CV for a check-up at the Career Corner with Jobcentre Lyngby Taarbæk. Feel free to use our free CV templates to prepare.
  • Interact with various organizations in The Career Corner - International House Copenhagen, Basecamp and Speak- School of Danish. 
  • Follow-up. Bring your unique perspective to the table, ask great questions, and follow up with recruiters after the fair.
