EP 30: How I Found A Job In Denmark
When you think about moving abroad, you never think about the obsticles you face while applying for any position that would have you. I looked all over the place on how I can get a job in Denmark, but all the post and stories on life about finding a job in Denmark were all horrible. It mentions how hard it is to get a job when you don't speak the language or if you are an international. But I didn't let all those stories let me down.
In this podcast, I will be talking about my experience on how I found my job in Denmark without even meeting my boss in person. There was a few times I almost gave up, but deep down in my heart I knew I can make this happened.
Listen, Laugh and Enjoy
EP 29: How To Get A Job In Denmark
I had a wonderful conversation with Karey Anne about how to get a job in Denmark as an Expat, International, Immigrant or whoever is trying to land a job in Denmark.
You hear rumors on how hard it is to get a job in Denmark, but you listen to this podcast, Karey Anne gives some amazing tips on how to get a call and even an interview.

I have been a guess of Jacklyn on her podcast. It amazes me how cathartic it was for me to share my story of living in Denmark and other parts of the word.
It reminded me how grateful I am to have had such an interesting life.
Thank you again for wanting to share my story. I hope it will be an inspiration to someone who needs it.
Jacklyn is a great interviewer.
As a TCK (Third Culture Kid) myself - I can really relate to this podcast! I have always found it really interesting to see how people adjust to different cultures while still trying to maintain their own special traditions. So excited to hear more from Jackie!
