Why this training?

This training is for everyone who’s ready to put themselves on the job market and find the job of their dreams. Maybe you’ve just completed a retraining program and are all set to start your new career, or perhaps you feel like it’s time to take your existing career to the next level and apply for a new position. Either way, entering the job market can be nerve-wracking, especially if it’s been a while. The great thing is that in today’s world, you’re no longer limited to applying for jobs solely in your own region. Thanks to online job markets such as LinkedIn and the ability to work remotely, job opportunities expand to companies worldwide. Although this development opens many doors, it can also feel intimidating knowing that the competition for the position you’ve applied for might be higher. This is why preparation is key when applying for your dream job.

So, how do you enter an interview feeling confident? And once you’ve had a successful interview, how do you negotiate the salary you deserve? That’s what you’re going to learn in this training. Within two days, you will not only feel confident and ready but also excited to start applying for jobs! And best of all? With the STAP budget, this training is also completely free!

Please note: this training is in English.

Ace your next job interview and negotiate the salary you deserve!

This course consists of 8 hours of live training spread over 2 training days. The first day will be focused on how to ‘Ace your job interview,’ and on the second day we will continue with ‘How to negotiate the salary you deserve’.

Ace your job interview

An interview process can be daunting, especially if it has been a while since you put yourself out on the job market. However, we are here to tell you that although it’s totally normal to have some healthy nerves, the process doesn’t need to be stressful. Whether you’ve been interviewing recently or haven’t applied for a job in years, we’re convinced that with the right preparation, you will feel confident to ace that next interview.

During the training, we focus on preparing an authentic and compelling interview pitch, in which you can answer questions like: “Tell me something about yourself” or “Why are you the perfect candidate?”

As you already probably know, the questions asked during a job interview can be very diverse. Therefore, preparing for an interview can seem pretty overwhelming. During the training, it will become clear that many different questions can be answered with your interview pitch. Let’s convince the interviewer that you are the candidate they’ve been waiting for!

Negotiate the salary you deserve 

You do not get what you deserve; you get what you negotiate. That’s why upgrading your negotiation skills is essential when (re)entering the job market. During this training, we will teach you how to become a balanced negotiator or negotiatress. In addition, we’ll look into different scenarios that can occur during the negotiation and how to tackle these. But most importantly, you have the chance to bring your new skills into practice immediately during several role-playing exercises with your fellow Techionistas.

Therefore, it is essential to come prepared for this training. Luckily, we have a guide that can help you do just that. Follow the steps in our guide to determine the salary and benefits you are aiming for.

You’re the perfect match if you…
