Unfortunately, there is not one specific method, which insures you a study job. But luckily there are several things you can do to increase your chances of getting it. Therefore, we have gathered information and good tweaks on how to increase your chances on getting the study job, you want.

 

From studies to job

You will often experience a change in the things you are assessed on when you are in the job market rather than in your studies.

Student

Graduated

Evaluated on subject knowledge

Evaluated on what you can and do

Personal competencies are less important

You need to sell both your personal and professional competencies

Logic rules: You pass one exam and can then go on to the next

No logic: Nothing can guarantee you to get a job

You are trained in an academic language 

The conclusion is the most important and often comes first

   
   

 

CV and application

Your CV and your application are not the same thing. Therefore, it is important for you to know the difference between the two. Your CV shows your profile, while the application shows your motivation.

 

Is there any difference in applying for a job during and after completed study?

The short answer is no, there is not. The things that you are assessed on, in relations to an application for an internship or study job, are typically the same as if you were applying for a job as a graduate. The advice on this page is therefore useful whether you are in the beginning, middle or end of your studies.

 

Stages in an application process

You cannot really see a job search as a statistical or linear process. But there are some general stages to go through. The time you spend on each stage is different – e.g., you usually use more time on the clarificatio, the first time you are applying for a job/internship. You can read more about the different stages and find more tips and tricks on writing an application and a CV on this page.
