On the 8th of June Capacent will, in conj­unction with Women in Iceland, invite 20 women of foreign origin who currently live in Iceland to take part in a career enhancement event and assist them in moving forward on the Icelandic job market. The main goal is to incr­ease their career opportunities by enabling them to better leverage their education, skills and experience.

Capacent is a leading consult­ancy firm built on the extensive experience and knowledge of its employees. The consult­ants at Capacent want to share their expertise of the Icelandic job market and best practice in self-promotion with this group of women. The consult­ants also wish to get a better under­standing of their circum­stances and the chal­lenges they face in finding a suitable role and thereby facilitate equality in recruit­ment pract­ices here in Iceland.

Capacent speci­alizes amongst other things in recruiting for speci­alized and managerial roles and this event is geared towards women who want to incr­ease their chances of finding a role suitable to their employ­ment and educational back­ground.

The training will be both in Icelandic and English.
The agenda will be as follows:

Works­hops 9am-2pm:

  • Opportunities within the Icelandic job market
  • Getting the most out of available job opportunities
  • CV and cover letter writing
  • Job interview preparations

One-on-one consulta­tions with recruit­ment consult­ants between 2pm-4pm.

The event is free of charge, lunch, coffee and snacks included. Application dead­line is 21st May. To register for the workshop please go to Capacent webpage:
