Description

This workshop will focus on the essentials for any application for employment in a non-academic context: putting together the practical tools of CV and cover letter.

In addition to addressing the different elements to include in application material, we will explore:

The job ad as problem statement: the analysis and deeper understanding of the opportunity in order to create an adapted, contextual application.

  • Identifying keywords and presenting the corresponding knowledge and skills that you bring.
  • Presenting your professional profile in the CV and cover letter: bringing your experience, the ability, and your motivation.

Method

This 4-hour workshop will be highly intensive, and focused on practical exercises. You should be prepared to share and exchange with others on your professional experience.
