How to optimize your CV and cover letter

A comprehensive and easy-to-read CV and a targeted cover letter are essential to an effective job search


Most recruitment procedures still rely on the conventional CV and cover letter to the employer. But in many industries, the competition for jobs is fierce. You are up against many other contenders. By joining this webinar, you will learn about human decision-making and perception based on research into the brain.

The webinar begins by discussing the optimal structure of the CV – that is, the order of its elements and a layout that helps the reader along. Next, we show you how to write a convincing cover letter that displays your motivation. We then address the question of building an effective pitch. Finally, we discuss the special circumstances on the Danish labour market that you need to be aware of when writing your material. 


The webinar will enable you to write an optimal CV that lets you control the reader's interpretation of your content.  We show you how to create a profile text with a focus on the job you are aiming at. You get precise instructions on writing a cover letter that demonstrates your motivation and pitches yourself convincingly, thereby giving you an optimal position for landing the job interview.
