13.07.: Letzter Termin - Offene Beratungszeiten für englische Bewerbungen für Auslandspraktika

The open office hours for English-language applications for internships abroad can help you with your American "resumé" or British CV as well as with all of the little grammar problems in your cover letter.

Are you thinking of applying for an internship abroad? The first step to getting your foot in the door is the written application. The internet is full of examples for "Lebensläufe" in English; however, you need to be sure that the form you use is appropriate for the country in which you are applying. For example, which countries are more accustomed to receiving applications in British English and which in American English?

Dr. Kai Herklotz from the Centre for Higher Education - Department of Foreign Languages can assist you with your resume/CV (Lebenslauf) and cover letter (Anschreiben) during the open office hours below.


Before you come by the office hours, though, please have a look at these links:
  1. Hochschulteam der Agentur für Arbeit
    The Hochschulteam assists in all questions about applications for the German market. We suggest that you first take your Lebenslauf to them in order to get a good idea about what information and competencies should be highlighted when applying for a job or internship. Once your German materials are perfected, you can start working on an application in the English language.
  2. Recommended links for applying in English
    Here you will find some helpful websites for starting your English-language application.


For assistance with your English application, especially common errors in language and structure, stop by at these times. You do not need an appointment, but please be sure to double check here before you come by to make sure that the advising will take place as planned:
