How to convince in the job interview (October 5-6, 2020 | online)

Written by

If you made it to the job interview you are already very successful: you wrote a convincing application. Nevertheless, there is still a long way to go, not least because, as face-to-face situations, job interviews are much less controllable than written applications. In this workshop, you will learn how to prepare job interviews. And we will practice them.

Target audience

Doctoral students, PostDocs


  • How to prepare for the interview (which aspects have to be considered? What do I need to do?)
  • Preparing my self-introduction
  • The most important point in the interview: show my competencies and achievements. How do I do this?
  • Typical questions and fitting answers
  • It is normal to feel stressed – but how do I deal with it?
  • How to talk about salary
  • Cultural differences – what to consider in German job interviews
  • Thorough training of interview situations

Please bring a suitable job ad with you (i. e. for a job that suits your profile and/ or a job you consider applying for).
