Volunteers / internships at Worktrotter

We offer volunteer positions to professionals and internships to students in Denmark who need to gain credits for their studies.

Work as volunteer in Denmark

You will paricipate in activities which can make yourself better known in Denmark. Having a brand is important to find a job.

To those participants who do a great job we will write a recommendation on LinkedIn and we can act as reference when they are looking for a job. As it is very important to provide references from Denmark when looking for a job in Denmark this can be of great value. At the end of your participation you will receive a certificate which you can use when you apply for jobs. It is important that people are motivated to do a good job and we are always very happy to support good people to be successful.

Online / offline marketing

We would like to involve motivated people for online marketing activities specifically due to their native language skills and the knowledge of their country. It would be great if they had knowledge in marketing but we can involve anybody who likes to write in their native language or English. You will be guided closely on what to do and how, we will show you how you can improve your work and your work will become more powerful as you go. You will build online marketing skills, online research, and you will learn a lot about Search Engine Optimization – a knowledge which comes in handy in many jobs.


Other voluteering / internship possiblities

The internship will require independent work, independent research, independent thinking, taking initiative and coming up with ideas on topics and solutions. During the internship the students will get good guidance and will work in a team with other people from Worktrotter and from other private, public and NGO organizations to gather information, to develop components and to spread the information about the results of their work in the community.
