English Intensive Courses

  • Application Workshop

    Writing an application for an internship or a scholarship or for a new job position is both important and difficult to prepare for. Today the competition is enormous and in this workshop we will explore how to present or “sell” yourself by looking at different ways of targeting your strengths and motivations, helping you to become more confident in choosing your own direction. The first step is in writing a CV or Resume, highlighting what you are doing and have done as a basis for targeting where you would like to go! Practicing for interviews will also be covered. If you already have a CV, bring it with you.
