The course will help scientists prepare their CV and cover letter to apply for a scientific position, and prepare for a job interview by participating in mock interviews with principal investigators.

DAY 1: The workshop will start with a general introduction on how to write a successful CV and cover letter. Participants’ CVs and cover letters will then be discussed in plenum. In a third step, participants will discuss and try to improve their CVs and cover letters in groups.

DAY 2: Participants will be interviewed by principal investigators and they will receive feedback from the PI’s as well as the other course participants. Together with a round table discussion and a panel mock interview, this workshop will help participants approach their interviews with more confidence.
