Consultation hours for job applications

Would you like specific, practical tips for successful job applications? Then join our consultation hour for job applicants.

Twice a week we offer you advice on the application procedure, the job interview and/or your application letter or CV. We also answer any questions you may have about applying for jobs. This might include:

  • Is my LinkedIn profile effective?
  • How do I find suitable vacancies?
  • How should I interpret the text in vacancy ads?
  • I would like to contact the employer by telephone. How should I do this?
  • How do I prepare for my job interview? Which questions should I ask?


The job consultation hours are every Monday and Thursday between 13.00 and 14.00h at the Student Desk (A304, route 14).
