Every project requires accuracy and a clear view on every step in the process.

  • Cover Letter Workshop

How many times did you apply to a job, got rejected firsthand, and wondered why? Could that have something to do with the way you apply? This hands-on workshop will help you address these questions (and more)!

For this, participants will be asked to compose a cover letter and CV and apply for a specific job beforehand. Then, an imec talent acquisition expert will analyze these dummy applications and offer ways to improve them!
