- Trade unions (e.g. DM, DJØF, or IDA): Trade unions act and negotiate on your behalf to secure you the best possible salary level and working conditions. Being a member of a trade union is not obligated by law, but it is very common and can provide you with a series of employment- and career-related legal support and services you may need such as guidance regarding individual employment contract, salary, and industrial accidents and injuries. Your choice of trade union depends on your educational background and workplace.
- Unemployment insurance funds: Having unemployment insurance is generally a good idea. Trade unions are associated with unemployment insurance funds, but in order to sign up you are not obligated to become a member of a trade union.
