This is part two in my sub-series of videos looking at lessons learned during my time looking for work in Denmark and shares lessons garnered from helping friends go through the same process.
This episode is dedicated to the subtle (and not so subtle) differences in how Danes write their resumes. I discuss the evolution my resume had to go through and point out a few key differences I've picked up on. Of course, resume varies widely from industry to industry, not just country to country, so use your best judgment.
The advice is tailored to internationals seeking work in Denmark but will be relevant for both Danes, Nordics and non-Nordic internationals alike.
**NOTE** I use the American term CV. One thing I don't discuss is the difference between Curriculum Vitae (CV) and Resume in an American sense - one being Academic, the other being Professional, and a European/Danish sense where the two tend to be used semi-interchangeably.
If you're Danish hopefully you'll find this series interesting, a bit informative, and not too outlandishly offensive.
If you're a foreigner coming to Denmark, I hope this helps you build upon observations and insights the rest of us had to find out the hard way.
Topics that will be covered include the Danish approach to nudity, how to make Danish friends, how to meet Danes, Danish manners, and even a look at Janteloven.
Stay tuned for future updates - this is just the beginning!
