If you move to another country then there are many challenges to face. One thing that is not to be underestimated is a good network both socially and at work.
There are many different expat networks in Denmark that can be a good help to get in contact with other foreigners in the same situation and share the experiences and information.
You have to find your network:
Remember that a network won’t appear by itself, you have to find it! Many embassies possess knowledge of networks for newcomers in their own language; the same is true for the companies. Many companies even have internal networks for their foreign employees.
Some clubs networks and societies are listed below:
The British European Association has many activities in Denmark. The association even publishes the magazine “British European” which deals with interesting subjects for the posted in Denmark.
