About this Event

What you will learn in this workshop

Career workshop with Dr. Christoph Senft, Co-founder and CEO of meetra.

The first part of our career workshop series was designed for everyone who is looking for a job in Germany! We'll give you insights into why many applications fail and how you can apply for jobs successfully. You'll learn how to get started with your job search and how to write the perfect CV and cover letter.

How to write the perfect CV and cover letter – Make the recruiter want to hire you right away!

  • Different CV and cover letters for different job applications
  • CV and job application format
  • What attachments to include

How to search for a job – Best practices

  • Recruitment processes and application strategies
  • Where to look for jobs
  • How to read job posts

***Only limited seats available! By limiting the group size, we can make sure that all of your personal questions will be answered and that we can develop an individual application strategy for each participant.***

+ Free add-on: Feedback on your application documents in a 1-hour individual career consultation!

Every workshop ticket includes one hour individual career coaching worth 95 €. This gives you the perfect opportunity to boost your application success! After you have learned the most important facts in the workshop, you will get the opportunity to receive personal feedback from an expert in a one-on-one session.

You can learn more about our one-on-one coaching here. The counseling will take place within 4 weeks after the workshop. You’ll receive a scheduling link to choose your preferred time slot for the coaching after the workshop.
