Content

When applying abroad, it makes little sense to transfer your German documents 1: 1 into the other language, as there are many country-specific features that you should be aware of. Some of these peculiarities are presented using the example of the large English-speaking countries.

Since in the English-speaking countries less importance is attached to certificates than in our country, it is particularly important here that applying means promoting yourself. This works best with visually appealing résumés and cover letters in which 'action words' are used specifically. How such applications can look like is discussed in the second part of the course.

There are also a number of options for preparing for your stay abroad. Above all, this includes the acquisition of sufficient foreign language skills, for which there are several recognized test procedures. Tools such as the CV Europass, international job search engines and advice centers specializing in stays abroad can also be very helpful here. These aspects are therefore addressed in the final third part of the course.

Aims

a) You know the formal characteristics of English-language applications
b) You can specifically use “action words” in your application
c) You will get to know helpful tools for applying abroad
