    Next to hosting companies and training agencies, RSM Career Centre offers three workshops throughout the year.

    Workshop How to set up a CV & Cover letter
    We will explain what we can do for you and give and provide you with information on how to set up a good CV and application letter. What is the difference between a CV and a resume? How should a CV look for a specific industry? What are the differences between the Netherlands and your home country? How to make sure your CV gets passed the Applicant Tracking System? Come to this session to have an answer to these questions and receive personal feedback on your CV and cover letter.

    Workshop How to prepare for an interview
    In a small group (max. 15 people) we will give you general information and advice about job interviews. You will get some tips & tricks and learn about the 'Do's and ‘Don'ts'. Next to this you can practice to introduce yourself and you will learn what to do with ‘tricky questions'... Do you have a job interview coming up? Or do you think it is useful for your future to know more about this subject? Come to this session. There is enough time for individual feedback due to the limited places.

    Workshop LinkedIn Optimisation
    During this workshop you will learn how to optimise your profile to use it as a personal marketing tool. Next to that you will be shown how to connect with alumni, how to learn more about companies, how to search for jobs and how to use LinkedIn as a networking tool. This workshop will be given in a computer room so that you can right away make updates to your profile (if you don't have a profile, please create one before attending the workshop) and search for best practices.
