Effective job search

Whether you are searching for a part time job during your studies or a job after your graduation, now is your chance to get the best tips from our Career Counselors for a successful job search! In this workshop, you will receive help in e.g. following questions: 

How to begin job searching? How do I write a good application and CV and stand out from other candidates? What kind of possibilities does social media offer for job search? How do I find jobs from the hidden job market? 

In the workshop, you will get the opportunity to read and comment on the other participants’ CVs in an encouraging environment. This in a unique opportunity to see other students’ career documents and receive constructive feedback on your own CV. Students who have participated in similar workshops have found the feedback they received highly rewarding. Therefore, take a digital version of your CV at hand and remove all information you do not wish other participants to see.

Nail your job interview

Come and get tips for a successful job interview! 

How to prepare yourself for the interview? What are the most common interview questions and how you should construct your answer to those? And which questions are not allowed in the interview? 

During our workshop you will get answers to these questions and will get the opportunity to practice the interview setting in a group of 3- 4 students. 

LinkedIn 1: Learn how to LinkedIn

Update your LinkedIn-profile to a whole new level! In this workshop we will look at your LinkedIn-profile especially from the point of view of job search and networking.

What do the recruiters pay attention to in your LinkedIn-profile? How do you stand out from the other candidates? You will also receive help in writing your profile text.

If you do not have a LinkedIn-profile, please create one before attending to the workshop.

LinkedIn 2: LinkedIn Feedback Sessions

Do you already have your LinkedIn profile set up, but you are wondering if it describes you and conveys the right message? Are you using the right keywords? Is your headline relevant? Are your goals, visions and competencies clearly articulated in your profile?

In this workshop you will be able to ask questions and discuss your profile with your peers. After a short intro by our career counsellor you will get opportunity to get peer feedback on your own profile in small groups. This workshop is targeted for you if you already know the basics of LinkedIn but would like to polish your profile.

Recognise your skills 

Wondering what skills have you developed exactly during your education, your working life experiences and eg. in your hobbies and other extra-curricular activities? In our Recognise Your Skills Workshop you will get the chance to map out your skills and strengths and also to verbalise them in a way that will be helpful to you when looking for jobs.   

The workshop will be led by one of the university’s career counsellors and you will be working both individually and in small groups with other participants.
