Are you considering career opportunities with internationally orientated firms and institutions? Then you may need to submit application materials and participate in interviews in English. That is where this lecture is meant to help. Its goal is to highlight dos and don’ts regarding the curriculum vitae and cover letter and to provide insights into presenting yourself convincingly in the English-language interview. Selected differences between British and American practices will also be addressed. The lecture will be held in English by a native speaker, and any questions you may have are certainly welcome both during and after the talk.
