JIFF presents the Tools to Get a Job Workshop

Nowadays applying for a job seems to be a job in itself. Gone are the days of writing one résumé and blanket sending it to all the local companies; these days each company expects a tailor made C.V. and each culture has its own dos and don’ts.

In this 4 session workshop we look at how you can optimise your own resume and adapt it to the various job markets in Switzerland. We help you stand out from the competition and show you how to promote yourself on social media. Lastly we will give you some useful tips on interview techniques and body language and the opportunity to try out your newly found skills during a mock interview.

The Job Integration for Foreigners organisation has been giving CV workshops for the past 3 years now and it has finally put together the most comprehensive workshop to help you find a job in the Swiss market. The entire sreries of workshops costs CHF 40.-

This workshop will run over 4 nights and look at various aspects of the challenging job of applying and getting a job.
