Applying for a job is FUN

VU Amsterdam - 29 June 2017 - 11.15 hours

Abstract: The process of searching for the right position is often seen as a hard job. Most people find it difficult to find a job that fits their profile. The moment they found that interesting position, they often don’t know how to apply and become very nervous when they are invited for an interview. We think that applying for a job can be fun when you know the rules and play the game.
