As part of the application consultation, we have two main areas of work: the preparation and support of applications for professorships, as well as an application document check for applications within and outside academia. We do of course treat all your documents and information with confidentiality.
preparation and support for professorship applications
We firstly support you in the preparation of your application documents. Here, we analyse and optimise your CV, your cover letter as well as your research and teaching concepts, in particular with regard to the specific requirements of the announcement and the denomination of the professorship, together with you. Our experience has shown that the analysis and consultation process usually take between two and four hours. Secondly, we prepare you for the oral hearing. Here, we are happy to advise you for possible points of focus, pitfalls and how to deal with strengths and weaknesses in your profile. We offer you a trial run of the required job talk, the demonstration lecture and the appointment committee hearing. We will optimize your self-presentation during an intensive feedback process. Here, you should expect a time frame of three to five hours. up
examination of application documents
We are happy to assist you in the preparation of your application for scientific positions (e.g. for postdoc positions) and positions outside of academia. Usually you send us the job posting, as well as your application documents (important: CV, cover letter, employer certificates and references). We analyze your documents and then go through the application with you in order to jointly identify optimization options. The time span for the analysis and consultation process is usually around two to three hours. up
