This workshop will give you practical tips to write an excellent application letter and CV!
The workshop is about how to apply for a job. You have to "sell" yourself, but how do you do that? In this workshop you'll get a close look at that. For example your CV is not just a list of all your activities, work history and education. You should consider it a marketing instrument that has to sell you. So how you can transform your list of activities to a sales document is what you'll learn in this workshop. For non-Dutch speaking students: the Europass CV is for this reason not a suitable CV for the Dutch (labour) market.
The following subjects will be addressed:
• The theory how to apply for a job
• Sample CV
• Job analysis: a structure that helps you to analyse a vacancy
• Structure of an application letter
• Good and poor examples of motivation and sales pitches from application
