Put a Fresh Coat of Paint on Your Application
The application brochure by the Career Service at Chemnitz University of Technology gives students and alumni detailed information on the design of application documents
If you want to apply for a job or an internship, you often have to fight your way through a jungle of information because the Internet is full of tips and tricks on the subject of applications. But what are the current standards? Which sample template can I trust? And what pitfalls must I avoid so that my application is well received? The Career Service at Chemnitz University of Technology now provides answers to all these questions in the new brochure "New coat of paint for your application."
"We have packed all the experiences from our daily work in Career Service into the practical guide. Readers will learn how to write an application with sound content and how to make it look professional. A lot of background information helps students and graduates to individually design their applications in order to stand out from the mass of applications and avoid typical mistakes," Marc Stoll from Career Service says to summarize the 50-page brochure.
For more than ten years, the staff of the Career Service at Chemnitz University of Technology have been supporting students and alumni in their transition to working life by checking their application documents, among other things. Hundreds of cover letters and CVs have been given final touches before they are sent out. In addition, the Career Service works successfully with numerous regional and national employers and knows their requirements for a successful application - valuable knowledge that is presented in the brochure in a detailed and comprehensible manner.
The applicant brochure is available for download at https://www.tu-chemnitz.de/career-service/pdf/Neuanstrich_fuer_deine_Bewerbung.pdf. It can also be picked up at the Career Service in the Pegasus Center (4th floor) and will also be available in printed form at the university in the future.
