Understanding a job ad is the first step to creating a customized application. We help you to read between the lines.

Recruiters receive hundreds of applications. A well-structured, informative and easy-to-navigate CV can help you to stand out.

However, structure and design depend on many factors including your professional background, industry and the type of application. Based on a questionnaire we send you a template which suits you best.

  • Concrete and easy-to-navigate

Many companies directly ask you to attach certificates to the application. But there is no need to attach dozens of documents. Our step-by-step guide shows you:

  • how to create a simple-to-navigate and elegant package
  • which certificates to include
  • how to deal with certificates in a foreign language

Learn about the 10 questions asked in most interviews. If you prepare in advance you will master them easily.

Many times German recruiters ask you to tell about your CV. They are looking for the “red line”. We practice to tell your personal story in a concise and convincing manner.

We practice eight different interview scenarios. Examples include situational interviews and stress interviews. After the training you will know how to react in different situations.

We look at structure scenarios – so you know what to expect in an interview.

Interviews are hard even in your mother tongue. Of course, they are even harder in a foreign language. Jointly we prepare expressions and replies which can help you during the interview.

The training is an excellent opportunity to receive feedback from trainer and peers. Body language tends to be a big part of this as it is tremendously important throughout the interview. You will also learn tips and tricks how to appear secure.

We talk about etiquette: dress-code, handshake, drinks, “Sie” or “du”, punctuality, follow-up,  … anything you want to know.

How do you negotiate a good salary? Can you ask about home office? Is the number of vacation days negotiable? We discuss a suitable approach to the “tough” questions.
