Training for Job Applications and Interviews

In this workshop you will:

  • learn how to convince decision-makers by “translating” your academic skills into the language of your desired field
  • understand the most basic and yet often underrated principle of matching your value proposition to the organisation’s need
  • find your personal answers to the five most pertinent interview questions for an organisation of your choice

*Please bring a job advertisement that either sparked your interest or that you want to use purely for the sake of exercise.
