Online Workshop Writing a cv and cover letter (in English)

Are you ready to look for an internship or new job? In this workshop you will learn what is standard practice for writing an effective cv and appropriate cover letter. 

Using instruction video’s and detailed explanations of do’s and don’ts, we will show you the different components that make up cv’s and cover letters. We’ll also discuss how employers select from all the cv’s and letters they receive, and how you can use this knowledge to your advantage. During the workshop you will start working on your cv and cover letter and give each other feedback with the help of a checklist. There will be plenty of time for you to ask any questions you may have. 

Once you have finished your cv and/or cover letter using all the knowledge you’ve gained during the workshop, you can get this checked by a career officer in an individual session. 

This workshop is an excellent starting point for students who are new to writing cv’s and cover letters. 

Who is it for: 
3rd-year and 4th-year Bachelor's and Master's degree students, recent UU graduates and PhDs from all Graduate Schools

Our no-show policy

We are happy to offer workshops for free to all Utrecht University students. However: free of charge does not mean free of responsibility. 

Our workshops tend to be fully booked well in advance. For every late cancellation or no-show, we have to disappoint students who would have liked to attend. This is how we work:

  • Once you have signed up for a workshop, we expect you to attend;
  • If you need to cancel your registration, do so at the earliest possible moment, at least 24 hours before the activity;
  • Not showing up without notice will mean you cannot participate in any Career Services activity for 8 weeks. Two no-shows mean you cannot participate for the remainder of the academic year.
