How to achieve a meaningful career in Denmark

In addition to Danish language learning, Copenhagen Language Center offer career guidance as part of our services. Our career counsellors will help you to clarify how you can use your experience and qualifications to achieve a meaningful career in Denmark.

In one-on-one talks you can discuss the direction of your career and/or alternative career options. Our career counsellors offer personal feedback and career guidance to increase your awareness of your competences and what you have to offer.

In career counselling we talk about:

  • what kind of work you have had in the past
  • whether it is possible to find the same kind of work in Denmark
  • what other options you have

We will help you clarify:

  • how you can use your experience and qualifications
  • how you can get help from your local job centre
  • how you can develop your professional network in Denmark
  • how you can get a professional mentor
