Plus, you will beneﬁt from peer and professional feedback as you explore your options and reﬁne your search.
Evening 1: Deﬁne goals and set milestones
On the ﬁrst evening we get to know each other and deﬁne your goals. Then, we will work out how to reach them by setting attainable milestones, in line with the job market. We will also discuss your motivations, and assess the personality test you will have completed before the workshop.
Evening 2: Applications and proﬁle sharpening
Both the coach and the group will take a look at your CV and profiles, and advise on how to effectively showcase your achievements – and in turn, set yourself apart from the rest. You’ll also receive lesser-known tips from industry experts on how to write exceptional applications and improve your social media profiles, on platforms such as LinkedIn and Xing.
Evening 3: The Swiss application process and applying to multinationals
In this session we will look at important aspects of the Swiss employment market. We will review your list of possible employers, or initial job applications, and discuss timing and follow-up in the application process. You will also hear about useful strategies for performing well at Assessment Centers and get preliminary tips for interviews.
Evening 4: Preparing for interview
In this concluding session you will have a chance to practice your interview techniques through role-play, we will review the whole course and you will develop your plan for your next steps and get feedback from the group.
To get the most out of the workshop, set aside three to ﬁve hours between each of the evenings to go through and revise documents, ﬁnd additional information, look for vacancies, etc. Your coach will be available for brief consultations via phone between each session.
