The workshop, which is part of the FAI network for promoting young scientists, will take place on December 8th, 9 am to 5 pm (including breaks), and is free. The course will be given in English and will be held in-person at the University.
To create a match in today’s job market, employers use a variety of different procedures. One very advanced recruiting instrument is the assessment center, a venue designed to give the candidate the chance to learn more about the job and the employer the opportunity to assess the applicants’ behavior in relevant situations.
In this workshop, we focus on conveying the strengths throughout an assessment center. You will learn how assessment centers work and you will yourself go through a number of different exercises and simulations. This will prepare you to handle the real assessment center in an authentic and self-confident manner.
· Introduction to the assessment center
· Structure of an assessment center and ways to assess
