5 clever tips for moving to Denmark
Denmark, the land of fairy tales is truly a special place. However, leaving your home and moving to Denmark, can also cause uncertainty and moving anxiety. With a couple of tips, the transition can be made easy and smooth.
Hire reliable movers
If you want your belongings to arrive safe and sound, you need someone you can trust with this task. And there’s no better choice than to hire a reliable moving company. It’s hard enough having to worry about all of the tasks that a relocation involves. On top of it, you don’t want to experience any bureaucratic issues. Leave it up to professionals to do their job, and you can focus on other things that need to be taken care of.
Get a job
Unless you’re moving for your job, you’ll need to find employment quickly. Luckily, the Danish job market is quite dynamic. Study the ads to find out what skills are most wanted on the market. In case you have these skills, highlight them in your CV. Try to find an interesting job offer online. However, keep in mind that you’ll need to compete with people who speak Danish as a mother tongue and who know the traditions and customs. In the beginning, your English might be considered an asset. However, very soon, you might find that Danish is required for you to get ahead on your career path. And don’t forget to mingle and meet new people as connections can be very useful when finding a job. Job events are a good place to start.
You’ll find that in Denmark, most people can speak and understand English. However, if you really want to integrate into a new environment, meet people, and get a well-paid job, consider learning Danish. There are many online courses you can get for free, and you can even find a free course in Denmark if you have a work contract or a CPR number.
Have your warm clothes brought to your door
Danes believe that there’s no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothing. And Denmark has cold and snowy days, as well as warm summer days, along with transitional seasons. You’ll have to get good waterproof boots along with light clothes, to be prepared for the weather in Denmark. Maybe you’ll need to buy new clothes, you can use the clothes you already have as well. If you want your belongings brought to you in time, consider hiring professionals. A door to door move with a good company will ensure just that – that your belonging will be there at the right time.
Prepare for the ride
Moving locally is not easy, but moving to Denmark, to a new country on a different continent can get challenging. However, it’s also an adventure that can reward you with so many opportunities. Try to stick with this perspective and prepare for the ride! Soon, you’ll be able to start enjoying your new life.
