Workshop “Job hunting and application skills”, 27-28 June 2013


We are happy to announce our first workshop on “Job hunting and application skills: How to apply with a PhD degree“.

Date: Thursday, 27 June 2013, 11:00-17:00 & Friday, 28 June 2013, 11:00-17:00

Place: GZMB building, Justus-von-Liebig-Weg 11, room 0.232


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.


If you would like to take part in the workshop, register for the GGNB Career Services and write an e-mail to the coordinator Katrin Wodzicki ( The e-mail should include a motivational statement (Why do you want to take part in the workshop and why right now?). To make the most out of taking part in the workshop, you might bring your most recent CV and, if available, one interesting job ad to the workshop.

Please note that this workshop might be sought after; consequently, we reserve the right to select the applicants with the highest need at the moment. There will be, of course, a waiting list for the next workshop of this kind.

More information about the trainer is available here.
