Get that Job!
Applying and Interviewing for Jobs in English
This workshop focuses on the distinctive aspects of applying for jobs in English, a scenario you may encounter with any firm worldwide which operates internationally. It provides training in navigating selected stages of that process, including building your curriculum vitae and cover letter and presenting yourself convincingly in the interview. In the first part of the workshop, our entire class will come together in the virtual seminar room to examine sample CVs and cover letters and to focus on tips and principles relevant for interviewing strongly.
We'll then divide our class into small groups. After lunch, each group will return to the virtual seminar room at a different time – for example from 2:00 to 3:00, 3:00 to 4:00 or 4:00 to 5:00 pm – to practice the interview in short, individual simulations with feedback from other group members and the trainer. (On the day of the workshop, we will work out together who comes back for which time-slot and try to accommodate individual wishes, but please be prepared to be a bit flexible here.) This arrangement also provides the perfect platform for gaining experience with interviewing online.
The workshop's overall goal is to enable you to create effective application materials on your own and to increase your confidence when interviewing in English.
You'll receive a .pdf file with example materials as well as other helpful information related to the job-application process. The workshop is held in English by a native speaker.
