ETH Career Center Events for Kontaktparty 2020

Accompanying the VIS Kontaktparty and in collaboration with the ETH Career Center we present 2 talks to give you some insights into the application process, some best practices when contacting companies, how to avoid common misconceptions and some hints on how to prepare for a job interview. Both talks will be held in English.

Informational Interviewing and Career Misconceptions

A job interview is not only a great opportunity to leave a good first impression but also to understand if the position you are applying to suits you. Based on concrete examples the ETH Career Center will show you how to best prepare for a job interview. Furthermore, you will learn about common career misconceptions you might have during and right after your studies. Event details: Tuesday, February 25th 2020, 5.15pm, HG D1.2 No registration required

Interview Training

The ETH Career Center presents a recording of an authentic interview situation, which shows typical first questions, good and critical answers but also frequently observed uncertainties. Based on the recording and additional comments you will be able to see what you can expect in a first job interview, why these questions are asked and how to answer them in the best possible way. The workshop should be as interactive as possible: Questions are welcome. Event details: Thursday, February 27th 2020, 5.15pm, HG D7.2 No registration required
