Course Description

So you have decided to apply for a Master’s degree, a PhD, an internship or perhaps even a permanent job abroad in a foreign-language environment, but you are not confident about your language skills? We offer courses in English, German and Dutch to help you create a solid, high quality CV and letter of motivation that will help you to make a good impression and ‘stand out from the crowd’.

In addition to discussing some of the cultural conventions that apply in other countries, you will learn to choose ‘power verbs’ and active language to send the message about yourself that you want potential employers to receive.

In each 3-hour hands-on workshop, you will learn some basic principles for creating a winning, solid and effective CV, together with a covering letter of motivation which will advertise your most important, marketable, valuable product: YOU!

Group Size

There is a maximum of 10 participants.

Language of Instruction

The language of instruction will be the same as the target language of the CV and letter of motivation.

Course Material

Material in Nestor, a blackboard learning environment will be used.
