Dear readers of DCCJ
Recent success with costumers and client interaction has convinced me to make a career move to Tokyo. Though currently I mainly have experience with teaching and some sales I am aiming for an opportunity to provide solutions for the most pressing problems in a different field than teaching.
I have been an essential part - at my current company - in the process of signing new companies. By interacting with major companies in Japan (Randstad and DuPoint) and doing one-on-one client interaction I understand the market well enough to be able to provide apt solutions to clients.
Another part of my job is recruiting individual students. Besides teaching I also run the day-to-day business of one of our schools branches. This means that I take part of the recruitment process. I stand behind a 10% increase of new customers which has lead to a new branch being opened next month.
I can be contacted through my mail and would love to phone/meet up for a chat.
Til jer, der ikke kunne komme, kan vi fortælle, at vi mødes hveranden uge på Starbucks i Midttown. Dagen kan skifte lidt, men tiden vil altid være mellem kl. 09:30 - 11:30. Detaljer vil også være at finde på Den Danske Klubs Hjemmeside på Facebook.
Næste møde vil være 31.05.2013 mellem kl 09:30 - 11:30
Hvis i kender nogen, der ikke er med på listen, må i meget gerne lade jungle trommerne lyde.
Japanese celebrity chef receives Danish visit
For two nights only, in collaboration with the Royal Danish Embassy, the renowned restaurant Nobu Tokyo will be serving some of the best that Nordic and Japanese food can offer.
For this special event, Niels-Frederik Walther (Executive Chef at the Residence of the Royal Danish Embassy in Tokyo) and Kazuhiro Yokoyama (Executive Chef, Nobu Tokyo) have created a 7-course dinner menu influenced by the traditions and produce of both the Japanese and the New Nordic kitchen.
Niels-Frederik Walther, Executive Chef at the Residence of the Royal Danish Embassy in Tokyo, comments:
“There is huge interest in New Nordic Food in Japan at the moment, and Nobu was excited when I presented them with the idea for a Nordic/Japanese collaboration dinner. Together with chef Yokohama I have tried to incorporate Nordic ingredients and flavours, as for example herring, but served as sashimi, something you would normally never experience in Japan”
The dinner is mostly based on local Japanese ingredients but with a strong presence of produce that is not normally associated with Japanese cuisine, such as potatoes, rhubarb, apple, and dill to give the menu an overall taste of the Nordic Region.
For more information, please contact Jens H. Jensen at the Royal Danish Embassy,
I am a 23 year old MSc International Economic Consulting Student from Aarhus, Denmark, looking for an internship in Japan for my 3rd semester. I am flexible regarding starting time, but would prefer mid-august, and a duration of 4-6 months.
I grew up in the southern part of Denmark and attended a German private school, as I am half German on my father’s side, and as a result I speak Danish, German and English on a native level. Business and economics have always fascinated me, and I decided to move to Aarhus to study a general economics Bachelor degree. I spent my 5th semester in Hong Kong, which gave me a taste of travelling and also brought me to Japan, and I returned to next summer to spend a longer time there. This only made me want to stay even longer, and I have decided to go to Japan for an internship now that I am studying my Master degree.
My work experience is versatile, ranging from customer service in Danske Bank to Procurement in Aarhus Municipality. Additionally I have started my own company, an import agency focusing on high quality products from Asia. This has brought me a range of skills of which most important is the ability to quickly adapt and put practical knowledge into use. Additionally I am practiced in the use of the Office platform, Visual Basic, various econometrics programs like STATA and SPSS, and SAS.
If all of this sounds interesting to you, you will find my CV and contact information in the link below. I look forward to hearing from you.
My name is Christian Thygesen Søndergaard. I am 24 years old and at the moment I study my Master in International Business at Aarhus University. In the summer of 2012 I finished my bachelor in Economics and Sustainability at Aarhus University. Through both my bachelor and current Master my wish for an international internship has been strengthen. I have always had a strong interest in the international business environment and especially an interest in working with the different cultures, which sets the boundaries of the international market. Due to this rooted interest I chose to go to Bangladesh in 2008 where I worked for 1 year for a Danish textile manufacturer. The stay challenged me a lot both professionally and personally and since the stay I have wanted to expand my knowledge of the international market – which is one of the prime reasons for this internship application. I see an international internship as a very rewarding part of my personal- and professional development just like I see it as a natural part of my Master in International Business.
Start: August/September 2013
Duration: 6-12 month (preferable12 month)
Housing and transport: I will handle all the finances of the internship including costs
associated with housing and transport. I would of course
appreciate assistance in findinghousing possibilities but
otherwise I will solve that as well.
From the below link you can read more about my internship together with my professional- and educational background.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read about my internship.
