Professional and Personal Competencies

This workshop focuses on identifying and enhancing both professional and personal competencies. Understanding your strengths is crucial for the job search process. You’ll learn to pinpoint and articulate your skills, explore job opportunities relevant to your degree, and gain insights into the local job market. The workshop combines presentations with practical exercises and is held at AAU Esbjerg Campus. 

CV and Application Writing

In this session, we delve into crafting an effective CV and job application. We start by assessing your current experience and discussing what makes a strong CV and cover letter. You’ll receive practical tips from a recruiter’s perspective and have the chance to work on your own documents with feedback. The session also covers the strategic use of LinkedIn in your job search. The workshop is a mix of presentations and hands-on activities, hosted at AAU Esbjerg Campus. 

Job Interview Preparation

This workshop hones in on job interview techniques. We’ll discuss your previous experiences, expectations, and areas for improvement. You’ll learn about the typical interview process, from who you’ll meet to what to expect, including essential do’s and don’ts from recruiters. Preparation is key, so we’ll help you craft your personal narrative and tackle common interview questions. If interviews make you nervous, we’ll provide strategies to manage anxiety.
