Job applications in English

Content Are the contents of an English CV/resume the same as in your native language? Can you write about your background and career convincingly and demonstrate your motivation and expertise in a cover letter or personal statement? And can you strike the right balance between "selling yourself", focusing on your strengths and motivations, yet not sounding arrogant? How do you come across?

The objective of this workshop is to put you on an equal footing with English native speakers when applying for positions abroad. This workshop provides you with all the information you need for job applications in English. Before the second workshop day, you will prepare (or optimise) your CV/resume/LinkedIn page/cover letter and receive feedback in small groups.
