Consultation & orientation

We offer both career orientation and career consultation. By first determining your strengths and what you are really looking for, we can get a clear focus on your personal needs. Afterwards your own career coach provides you with exactly what you need – whether it is help with exploring career opportunities, improving your interview skills or some useful tips that will give you an edge on the competition.

Writing services

Before you can convince your future employer in an interview, you first have to be noticed. You have to grab the attention of recruiters and hiring managers. That’s why we also help you with improving your CV, cover letter and LinkedIn profile. You will get optimized documents tailored to the job, but they will also be customizable to other vacancies so you can use them again without much hassle.
