Help you can get as a graduate

In your period of job-seeking you typically have several places to seek help. Interviews at the job center and A-kasse are often compulsory, but your A-kasse will help you get an overview of the situation. Here is an overview of the some of the places you can get help:

 

Your A-kasse

You must apply for admission in an A-kasse within 2 weeks before graduating, to get the right to unemployment benefits a month after you graduate.  It is your A-kasse who is responsible for the administration of your unemployment benefits, but they also help you with job-seeking through interviews, events, etc. Contact your A-kasse to hear more about the help that they offer.

 

The job center in your municipality

Some municipalities have a special team, who helps unemployed graduates. You can get help on getting in contact with an organization or help with your job application, regardless of whether there is a special team or not. When you've graduated, you should report your unemployment to the job center. The first step is to contact your A-kasse and ask what to do, once you are unemployed.

 

Career guidance at SDU

You can get career guidance at SDU even after you've graduated. You can book a career guidance meeting or participate in career events at SDU. Some graduates use career counseling if they need input, more interviews, or a closer relation to the university.

 

Our webpage

Our webpage is a source to help you with your job search. You can get input on your CV, job application, how to spot and express your competences, or how you can prepare for a job interview.
