  • I'd just like to point out that if your foreign applicants are citizens of a country in the European Union there is practically nothing Danish laws (or indeed your company) can do which would prevent them from moving to Denmark and applying for a job the same way a Dane would. The free movement of persons withing the EU is one of the four essential freedoms [wikipedia.org] that lie at the basis of EU law after all, and significant barriers of other kinds have been broken down (such as the ban on importing pets into the UK and the limitation of number of foreigners in league football teams :-) because of it.

    You were probably aware of that and were talking about applicants from outside the EU, so feel free to disregard my post.

    Disclaimer: I am not Danish so have no direct knowledge what kind of shenanigans Danish law plays (and politicians continue to surprise me), nor am I looking for a job (I'm a happy little telecommuter and it'd take some major event for me to go back to traveling to work in my own city, let alone another country). I will however say that for those who haven't done it yet I heartily recommend taking a job in a different country. Even if you end up going back after a short period of time it'll leave you with an experience of a different culture which will improve you as a person, if nothing else.
