Application documents and envelopes on a tableYou are looking for an internship or job position and want to find out more about how to apply in Germany? You want to know about the employers’ expectations towards international applicants? – The training focuses on internship opportunities in Germany and the development of a career strategy. You learn to assess your personal and professional competencies. You will discuss the specific chances as an international applicant, but also potential obstacles during the application process. Special emphasis will be put on the intercultural skills gained during the studies in Germany, and how this can be reflected in an international career. 

Practical exercises on cover letters and CVs will enable the students to create meaningful application documents according to the German standard. They will get to know typical job interview situations and will simulate these situations during role plays. They will develop an idea about how to communicate their international background convincingly.
