Application letter & CV

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

Skills are hot

You read it everywhere: The labor market and the workplace will be changing rapidly in the near future, due to continuous and far-reaching technological and international developments. Next to keeping up to date with your professional knowledge, it is also important to keep your skills future proof.

Employers universally seek skills like creativity, collaboration, problem solving, critical thinking, and (intercultural) communication, to mention some. These can be important factors in a job interview. This demonstrates the importance of skills, whether these are hard, soft, 21st century or transferable.

How future proof are your skills? During this workshop, you’ll in the first place discover the skills you already possess (you’ll probably discover more skills than you can sum up now!). Secondly, you’ll get tips and tricks how to develop these to make and keep them future proof.

Don’t forget to bring your CV to the workshop.

The following subjects will be addressed:

  • The changing labour market
  • Insight in the different sets of skills: 21st century skills, transferable skills, hard/soft skills
  • You’ll practice two assignments that help you to discover your skills

Masterkeuze

Heel de dag door maak je keuzes. Zo kies je of je havermout of brood eet als ontbijt, wat je aantrekt, welke vakken je volgt, hoe je naar de universiteit fietst en hoe laat je naar bed gaat. Dit zijn alledaagse dingen waarover je besluit. Bewust en onbewust. Hoe ga je nu om met je masterkeuze?

In deze workshop word je op weg geholpen bij het maken van je masterkeuze. Het is ook mogelijk dat je tot de conclusie komt dat je (nog) helemaal geen masterkeuze wilt maken. Dat is ok! Wat je keuze ook is, het is belangrijk dat je er actief mee bezig bent en een gefundeerde, bewuste keuze maakt. Tijdens deze workshop krijg je inzicht in de fases van het keuzeproces en jouw eigen stijl van keuzes maken; ben jij een impulsieve, een rationele, een uitstellende of een intuïtieve kiezer?

Je interesses, motivaties en kwaliteiten geven richting aan een passende masterkeuze. Daarom ga je deze onderzoeken d.m.v. een test en verschillende oefeningen. Ook kijk je vooruit naar het beroeps- en werkveld waar je interesse naar uit gaat.

De workshop bestaat uit twee delen. Het zijn actieve workshops, waarvoor je zowel vooraf als tussen de twee delen huiswerk krijgt om actief op zoek te gaan naar informatie voor je (master)keuze.
 

Programma:

Aan de orde komen de volgende onderdelen

  • Fases in het keuze proces
  • Wat is jouw stijl van keuzes maken
  • Onderzoeken van je interesses, kwaliteiten en motivaties
  • Oriënteren op mogelijke masters en beroepen
  • Maken actieplan
  • Huiswerk
