Would you like to meet your future employer? This event offers you an exclusive opportunity to meet representatives from innovative companies on the lookout for international talent!
Together with other international candidates from Greater Copenhagen, you'll be matched with companies, based on their recruitment needs and your competencies. You'll get a customized schedule in advance, so you know which companies to meet during the event's interview-sessions.
This setup will provide you with more time to interact with the hiring managers to evaluate whether you are a good fit for their position. In addition to these scheduled interviews, there will be a company presentation round, where you will have a chance to learn more about the participating companies and their innovations.
Please notice that our recruiters will screen all the candidates and then select only the ones who meet the requirements of available positions. You will be contacted by email regarding the outcome of your application, once the screening and selection process is done.
The matchmaking event will take place entirely online.
Last years' International Matchmaking Event at the IDEON Science Park was a great success. 360 international candidates applied to be a part of the event and 90 were carefully selected to participate. The candidates met with 13 companies, resulting in a total of 148 interviews and 21 hires.

During the event, you will have the opportunity to participate in matchmaking sessions with relevant companies that suit your profile. The matchmaking sessions will be arranged in advance and you will be notified of the companies you have been matched with a few days before the event take place.
Based on previous experience, we know that matchmaking events can be intense, even the virtual ones. Therefore we have planned for short breaks between each interview and two extended breaks, so everyone has time to gather their thoughts between interviews.
