Other IT tools
The agency has developed a number of tools that assist the jobseekers and caseworkers and that address all types of jobseekers, including graduates and foreigners.
Application system for work-oriented offers (VITAS)
VITAS is a digital tool that supports business-oriented offers, both in the businesses’ application process and in the job centre’s case management of the application.
The purpose of VITAS is to simplify and streamline the application process for both businesses and job centres across the country. This is done, among others, by ensuring that the received applications are filled out with the correct information. The general optimization of the process both for businesses, job centres and citizens is implemented to give citizens and businesses faster, more transparent and more precise verdicts on applications.
The vision of VITAS is to give the best possible conditions for applications and administration of business-oriented offers and through this increase the quality of the employment effort.
Jobbing is an IT-tool intended to provide inspiration, cause for reflection and assist in job matching. Jobbing includes a section for planning your job search and provides information about your previous behaviour. The aim of the tool is to help shorten the duration of unemployment – particularly for recent graduates.
Jobbing is built around more than 500,000 individual profiles harvested from the Danish national CV database. By law, all unemployed persons in receipt of unemployment benefits must submit an approved CV to this database. Data is harvested from the CV database by means of data mining of all job postings from the past two years (more than 500,000 in total) in addition to a full company database (which lists more than 250,000 companies). Furthermore, Jobbing has a comprehensive skills database of more than 4,000 hard skills and more than 20,000 relations. Jobbing also has a comprehensive hierarchy of all degrees and educational titles both in Danish, English and Latin.
Workindenmark.dk is the official Danish website for international recruitment and job seeking. Danish employers can post job vacancies, search for foreign candidates in the CV database, and can find relevant information about recruiting employees from abroad.
Jobseekers from abroad can search for jobs in Denmark in the job database; they can add their CV to the CV database and find relevant information about job search, working and living in Denmark.
Besides the abovementioned services on Workindenmark.dk, recruitment consultants at Workindenmark's three centres can help both foreign jobseekers and Danish employers with providing information and guidance and facilitating recruitment processes.
