From 1100 Candidates to 12

An online case competition, video interviews, personality and aptitude tests, a full-day assessment center and a final interview – that’s what the 12 new additions to the Demant Graduate Family have been through to get to us.

We’re so happy with the new members of our family, and we’re proud to say that the 2018 group is the most diverse in our Graduate Programme’s history in terms of experience, educational background, nationality and personality.

A warm welcome to Abed, Alessandro, Alexander, Benedikte, Danique, Giulia, Julius, Nick, Nicolai, Nino, Rosa and Veronika – we can’t wait to have you join in September!

Christmas Luncheon: Work Hard, Play Hard

Few things are as representative of Danish working culture as the reputable company ‘Julefrokost’ (Christmas Party). This once-a-year event has become such a staple that many companies use it as a point of differentiation to attract applicants and cement a particular corporate identity.
