Companies in Norway are increasingly asking applicants to submit their CVs and cover letters in English: So how can you best tell your story in English?

Meld meg på

We work on your writing and show how it can impact your application: Will it be thrown out or move you further along in the hiring process?

You’ll also improve your oral English through reflection and discussion.

This course will provide you with the following practical writing advice:

  • Increased vocabulary to promote your experience and skills in a professional way
  • Using key words strategically to get noticed
  • Writing concisely and correctly in a ‘human voice’
  • Trendy terms: When to use? When to avoid?
  • Using active verbs
  • ‘Bragging’ about your skills: What works? What’s too much?
  • Free CV/CL proofreading offered to all course participants

The language of instruction in this interactive course is English; oral practice is encouraged through working in pairs and participating in group discussions.

Practical Information
