International Dual Career Network

SDU is a member of the organization IDCN Jutland/Funen (International Dual Career Network) in Denmark. It is a network that consists of many of the major companies/Universities in Denmark, whose main focus is to get spouses/partners of international employees a job career in Denmark. They all have expats employed, and therefore have an international business environment. It is possible for SDU spouses/partners to become a part of the network, and in that way get an exclusive opening to the companies in Denmark that very often hires expats.

But you can also be a part of IDCN without being a volunteer, please read more below.

You can also participate – without being a volunteer!

You can also participate in the events without being part of the volunteer work, so everyone is welcome at the events. At the events you have the possibility to meet recruiters from different Danish companies interested in hiring an international colleague. These recruiters are a good way to enhance your chances of getting a job in Denmark, so take the step and try to convince the recruiters about why the company cannot do without you.

You also have the possibility to put your CV in the IDCN database, where companies, which are members of IDCN, can go in and look after potential candidates for a job at their company. So do not hesitate to make a motivated CV to put into the database, so you increase your chances of getting a job in Denmark.
