Workshop Job-seeking Skills: Application Letter and CV

Are you spending a lot of time looking at job websites, looking for an internship or job? Maybe you already know what would suit you and which steps you want to make in your career, but how do you write an eye-catching application letter and a CV? Which information should you include in your CV and what should be in your letter? How do you ensure that they both send the same message to potential employers? In this meeting, we will work on your application letter and CV, and provide practical tips.
