Job applications generally require intensive preparation and often pose a challenge to the applicant.

To support you on this journey, we are offering a virtual career coaching exclusively for our community members. Let the experienced career coaches help you with the career planing, optimize your job application or receive tips on how to impress and deliver in a job interview.

Members can choose two of the following modules:

  1. Analysis and improvement of application documents (1x 60 minutes): The coach will show you possibilities for optimisation of your application documents and will give you tips on how to draft a successful and convincing job application. Furthermore, the coach can provide advice regarding the development of a personal application strategy.
  2. Preparation for job interviews (1x 60 minutes): The coach will personally advise you on the job interview process or prepare you for the upcoming selection process.
  3. Next career step or change of employment (1x 60 minutes): The coach will advise you on your next career step and prepare you for a possible employment change or the step into self-employment. The coach will also provide support regarding the development of an individual career strategy.
