A student job – not least a study relevant job – is extremely valuable to have on your CV.
Our surveys show that the competences you will receive from a student job are valued very much by employers. Many students experience that a student job may lead to a job in the same company.
Danish language skills are a must!
For international students it can be difficult to get a job due to lack of Danish language skills. Therefore, we strongly advise you to learn Danish at the language school. Find information at Aalborg Language School and IA Sprog Copenhagen.
