CareerTalk in the Summer Semester 2019
The CareerTalk took place again in the summer semester! The workshops dealt with the entire application process: from perfect documents to self-confidence in salary negotiations. The students had the opportunity to intensively deal with their own professional future.
Find out here which workshops were offered in the summer semester 2019.
THE PERFECT APPLICATION - OPTIMISE YOUR DOCUMENTS
06.06.2019, 16 to 19 o'clock in VW.10.001 - Speaker: Nader Fadl (University of Wuppertal)
The layout and design of your documents is one of the factors that determine the first impression a company gets of you. Your documents should be appealing, professional and structured - and they should match the advertised position. The individual note provides the final touch. In this crash course, our expert will show you how to update your application using examples. You will also learn what you should pay attention to when applying for international jobs.
SELF-PRESENTATION ON THE WEB - YOUR APPEARANCE IN PROFESSIONAL NETWORKS
18.06.2019, 16 to 19 o'clock in VW.09.002 - Speaker: Bakr Fadl (University of Wuppertal)
Use professional networks such as XING and Linkedin specifically for your career - the more meaningful your digital presence is, the more interesting you are for HR professionals and headhunters! But what do you need to consider when presenting yourself, how can you present your professional skills the best and which networks are particularly relevant? Additionally, find out how potential employers rate appearances on Facebook, Instagram and Co.
INTERVIEWS - HOW TO CONVINCE OTHERS OF YOURSELF
27.06.2019, 16 to 19 o'clock in VW.09.002 - Speakers: Susanne Koel and Lisa Steinhilber (GBA), Katja Hackler (Walbusch), Isabelle Saurwein (E/D/E)
The first hurdle in the application process has been taken - you have been invited for a personal interview! Find out in our workshop what is important now and how you can best prepare for the interview: What is the usual interview procedure? Are there typical questions? And what role do body language and clothing play? As speakers for this workshop we were able to win two HR professionals from different industries as well as a coach for self-marketing strategies - so you will get answers to your questions from several different perspectives!
SALARY NEGOTIATIONS AND EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS - TIPS & TRICKS
01.07.2019, 16 to 19 o'clock, B.06.01 - Speaker: Tanja Adam-Heusler (Hesse-Schrader)
"Please apply with details of your salary expectations" - this sentence often makes graduates feel uncomfortable. How much is your own work worth? And once the first step into the company has been taken, the next bureaucratic hurdle follows: The employment contract. The legal wording often leads to helplessness among future employees. In order to make the procedure easier for you, we offer this workshop: Learn to be more confident in salary negotiations and to keep an overview of employment contracts.

Our tips for your perfect job application photo: If possible, ladies choose blouses and blazers in simple colours. Make-up and hairstyle should also be kept discreet.
