Add-on to the topic: Future in Industry
Starting a professional career in industry
For most graduates the entry into a professional business life is a challenge. Since the expectation of the labor marketer are often unknown, young gradates often run into classical application mistakes. The need to clarify details about the application procedures, to critically review the information given in a CV and the self-presentation during a job interview is essential. Reflections on the application strategy, the labor market and contractual topics complement the workshop.
Knowing about competence
Success begins with the knowledge of what we know and what we are capable of. During an academic training we acquire many different competences most of them unknowingly. In the course we discuss and prove the existence of given academic competences and discover transferable skills. These insights will bridge the gap between personal skills and requirements coming from career, application and self-presentation challenges.
Self-marketing – an indispensable career booster
A satisfying self-presentation is always demanded. It requires self-awareness and self-confidence. Both are pushed by recognizing achievements, applying communications skills and the ability to gain sympathy. The workshop is focusing on four main topics: reflection on success stories, practicing lasting self-presentations, awareness of social behavior and hands-on tips.
Understanding intercultural differences
Misunderstandings are often caused by differences in individual values and norms. To act sustainable in a cultural diverse environment, people need to gain awareness on cultural preferences. Knowing why people react the way they do is the starting point to achieve understanding and respect. The course gives insights into scientifically proven cultural differences and their effect in day-to-day life.
