Workshop – CV-Writing

In this course you be shown, step by step, how to write a letter of application and a CV (résumé) according to British and North American standards. This covers the general layout forms, the appropriate formulations, and the often tricky vocabulary for the different German school forms, courses of study, subjects, and what have you.

In the first, two-and-a-half-hour session we will learn the basics, set up a letter of application and a CV together according to your specific needs, and work out the appropriate vocabulary.

You will then write your own personalized letter and CV at home on the basis of what you have learned. Then the instructor will go through them with you to make sure that everything is up to standard.
