This interactive workshop is aimed at MA and PhD students who want to embark on a global career.

Participants will gain an understanding of the role cultural differences play in CV writing and how to prepare for an international job application. During this workshop, we’ll look at what employers are looking for in different countries, which application methods work best, what skills sets make employers tick, and what to mention in your CV and application letter whether it is for a job in Shanghai, Stockholm or Sydney.
