Making a career in Aalborg: Online company visit for international students

by Nathalia Hentze Nielsen

Many Danish companies are waking up to the fact that hiring international employees carries major benefits – from new perspectives and cultural diversity to, not least, improvements in the bottom line.

At the International House North Denmark, they help young international talent get their bearings and settle in the North Denmark region with an eye to match them with Danish companies.

One of their initiatives is the Global Growth Agent program. The 2-year program helps students find internships or student jobs, hosts company visits and teaches the students about Danish work culture.

Usually, these company visits are exclusive to students enrolled in the Agent program, but on Thursday, February 11, from 15:00 to 16:30 all students who are interested can participate in the online company visit with Nordic Computer.

Recruiting international profiles

Nordic Computer is a company providing refurbished high-end data center IT equipment and multi-vendor hardware service.

The company has been around since 1979 and now employs 60 people, including 10 different nationalities that help the company export and find new market leads outside Denmark.

One of these international employees is Laura Cernica Larsen who is the Head of the International Key Account Team at Nordic Computer and who will be hosting the online company visit.

“We hope that our cooperation with the International House will open up new possibilities for us to recruit some talented international profiles,” Laura Cernica Larsen says.

“We offer short internships from three to six months, a 12-month graduate program, and full-time employment. Whether it is an internship or a full-time job, we invest time and resources in people so that they can stay with us in the long run.”

Thursday 11th February from 15:00 to 16:30 we will participate at an online event hosted in collaboration with…
