International Spouse Career Lunches 2018 – University of Copenhagen

International Spouse Career Lunches 2018

This event is held in an informal setting, but provides a chance for internationals to network, meet with other spouses and to share both professional and personal experiences and interests.

Apart from enjoying a delightful lunch and meeting new acquaintances, this event will also have a career focus on giving you tips on career-related topics and cultural aspects in Denmark. Some of the topics could range:

  • Do you need new ideas on how to enhance your job search?
  • Do you know how to create a CV or resume that stands out to employers?
  • Have you mastered the Danish hygge?

Each month’s theme will be conceptualised based on input from guest speakers, recruiters/head hunters, international spouses and expats.

Children are very welcome to the event; a cosy kid’s area has been set up to occupy them creatively.
