Workshop “Job Hunting and Application Skills – Natural and Life Sciences”, 11-12 May 2015


We are happy to announce the next workshop on “Job Hunting and Application Skills – Natural and Life Sciences”.

Date: Monday, 11 May 2015, 13:00-17:00 & Tuesday, 12 May 2015, 9:00-17:00
Place: GZMB building, seminar room 0.232
Trainer: Barbara Hoffbauer
Duration: 1,5 days


The workshop deals with how to write a professional application. Participants will learn about the requirements according to form and content of CVs and the respective differences between academia and companies. They will reflect about how to convey their strengths and motivation in response to a job advertisement, but also how to make use of speculative applications. Moreover, participants will train their self-presentation in the job hunting process, including self-presentation on career fairs, conferences, and interviews. The workshop will include a couple of training sessions, partly accompanied with video recording for a follow-up analysis.

Subsequent to the workshop, it is possible to get a CV check from the trainer.

A retrospective view on the first workshop of this kind is available here.
