Are you thinking about submitting your next CV and application letter in English?
Tekna’s course series “Møteplassen” is an offer to our members who are seeking new opportunities or searching for a new job. As companies in Norway are increasingly requiring applicants to submit their CVs and application letters in English, you might ask yourself “How can I best sell my skills and competence using English?” Sign up for the course “CV and application letter writing in English” or follow our streaming of the course below.
Karin Lee-Hansen who is the Tekna District Office Manager for the Agder region in southern Norway instructed this course. A US citizen, she has several years of experience teaching various English subjects in both the public and private sector as well as providing proofreading and translating services. She gave practical writing advice to increase your vocabulary, and showed the importance of writing concisely and correctly. Karin showed how the use of active verbs influence whether your CV and application letter lands in the HR junk pile, or helps you advance further in the hiring process.
In addition to our course series, “Møteplassen”, Tekna provide several courses that may be useful to you during your job search. We also help members who are looking for work due to downsizing, restructuring, layoffs or termination with legal aid or creating new opportunities if you are interested in starting your own business.
