Working abroad - The best way to do it

Working abroad

Do you want to work abroad? Here's what you need to know:

Working abroad can strengthen you both as a person, but also strengthen you professionally in your field.

It can be a big decision to make, especially if you also have a family to take into account. In this article, we will therefore try to answer some of the questions you may have if you are considering a job abroad, but in the end only you can know what is right for you. 

A good idea before you travel to another country to work, is to get acquainted with the culture and the country in general you are going to. It will help both you and your future employer, because in that way you show interest in the new culture. Be open to the country, the culture and to get to know new people, then it will be more comfortable and more fun to live and work abroad.

Below are a number of points that you can consider if you have to / want to work abroad.


  • Job opportunities and destination

    Consider which country you want to move to and maybe why? Is there anything special about the country that appeals to you? Can you use your skills and experience in a beneficial way there? Below it is a good idea to familiarise yourself with the working and living conditions in the country you want to go to.

  • Employment

    There are two options when you want to work abroad. To be offered a job abroad or a secondment.

    In  foreign employment, you work in the country on the same terms as the country's own citizens.

    When posting, you only work in the country for a period, often between 1 and 3 years. This employment usually takes place in accordance with Danish rules.

  • CV

Consider what assignments you will get abroad. The skills you acquire abroad should also preferably be able to be used when you return home.


  • Economy 

    Familiarise yourself with rent, salary and tax matters. This way you can create an overview of the cost of living in the country, including what you can do in your spare time.

  • Culture and language

    Consider what you would like to get out of working abroad, including in person. What culture can you see yourself living and working in? Do you want a culture reminiscent of the Danish, or do you want to try to experience something completely different? Working abroad is usually a lot different than what you may know from Denmark. Be ready to accept that things are different and go for it remaining as open minded as possible.

    Language can become a barrier. In some countries it will not be relevant for you to work if you do not know the local language and if English is not a widespread language. The social aspect of a workplace is important and it can be difficult for you to commit yourself among your colleagues if you do not understand what is being talked about during, for example, your lunch break.

    Therefore, consider whether you are willing to sit down and learn the language.

  • How long are you going to work there?

Make a plan for how long you want to stay abroad, including what it will mean for you and possibly your family.

  • What is important to you and possibly your family?

    If you have a family, it can be important that you talk through all the things that you will have to decide on in the new country, such as care, admission requirements at schools, what your partner should do abroad and so on.

That being said, there are also a lot of benefits to living and working abroad. You will be able to create a network, get to know new aspects of yourself - both personally and professionally - as well as acquire new language skills and work experience for your CV, just to mention a few.
