Danish Chamber of Commerce Organizes Expat Event & Job Fair
The Danish Chamber of Commerce (Dansk Erhverv) is holding two special events for the Expat community including a seminar about Settling in Denmark and a JOB FAIR (“for the expat partner”).
The organization created a Web community called Expat In Denmark http://expatindenmark.com/ launched June 30 this year that is free to join and offers Expats a social networking platform, information about Denmark and important info on the health, taxation, education, culture, entertainment, etc.
The site has a blog and a LIVE hotline that members can call — the Danish Chamber of Commerce Hotline — every day (M-F) from 13-16. Members can send a mail too with the promise of receiving a response within 24 hours.
One thing I noticed is that the job fair event specifies that the event is a “Networking Event and Job Fair for the expat partner,” so obviously this initiative is targeted to the transferred executive that has a spouse that needs placement as well. I don’t know if they will make a distinction between these kinds of job seekers and other kinds, like for example, spouses of Danes that are foreign. It’s worth pursuing if you are in need of work.
Here are the details on the two events listed on the site.
Tuesday, Sept. 9 (9:30-12:00) Expat Cafe’ – Settling in Denmark: Opportunities and Challenges
I am a Graphic Designer and third year degree student based in Bristol, UK. I have spent some years travelling and living abroad in USA, Australia, Asia and Canada and so decided to focus my final self-directed design work on ‘Expats and Living Abroad’.
I am currently inviting expats to participate in my project by answering a short online questionnaire on my blog: http://www.samanthabarber.com/expat. The results of the survey as well as interviews which I plan to carry out with expats will form the basis for my study over the next 6 months. Interested parties can sign up to receive updates on the project and can even be part of a review panel for design solutions I propose.
If you would like to take part or think this may be of interest to your readers I would be really grateful if you could add it to your website or suggest where I could post an entry about it.
Many thanks, best regards
