At some point during your time as an international student at the University of Southern Denmark the wish to get a relevant student job outside the university may arise. You may wish to work as an intern or to write a project together with a company. Or you may choose to stay in Denmark once you have completed your course.
At all events it is very possible that you will find that applying for a job in Denmark may differ from the standards that you are familiar with from your home country. For example do you know the precise difference between an intern and trainee? What are the Danish standards for an application? Or what does the term ‘qualifications’ actually mean?
That is why the CareerCentre has made this ABC on how to apply (download PDF below). The aim of the ABC is to make sure that your application and CV are consistent with the Danish standards and thereby to ensure the greatest chance of success.
At the same time it is important to emphasize that, even if you follow Danish standards, there is no precise recipe for the perfect application or the perfect CV. The ABC provides guidelines that should be used as inspiration and that are intended to equip you to present your qualifications in a Danish context. Once you have started writing your application and CV, you are welcome to visit the CareerCentre during our opening hours, where it is possible to have a personal talk with one of the CareerCentre’s advisers. The advisers will read your application and provide you with some final advice before the application is sent.
The CareerCentre have published an ABC on how to apply for student jobs, internships and practical projects.
