Starting Point

Skill comes with practice. To no surprise this is also the case when you apply for a job. But would you still want to practice when applying to what may be THE job of your dreams?

In this training you can get ready beforehand! You will receive the total self-marketing package for your next application. And you can practice what you have learned: how to use your application documents to make an outstanding first impression. How to convince in the interview that you are just made for the job. In short, how to excel at marketing yourself!


You know how to impress with your skills, experiences and style: first, in a convincing written application and second, in the job interview.


    • SWOT analysis – what are your hard and soft strengths and when are they most relevant in the application process?
    • Techniques to write a great covering letter which is different to that of other candidates  - how can it be outstanding and unique?
    • Differences between English and German CVs – and what is a video CV?
    • Interview preparations - what kind of questions can be expected, how can you practice your answers and what could you bring with you?
    • Difficult interview questions and how to answer them – the more you practice the better you become!


          Interactive input, discussion rounds, self-reflection, oral and written exercices as well as role plays with constructive feedback will keep you active. Max. number of participants: 12.


          This training is aimed at the scientific staff who would like to get ready for English applications. Tutors are welcome to participate, subject to availability of places.

          If you wish to benefit from feedback on your individual CV, please send it to the trainer one week before the training. You will receive a reminder beforehand.
