Career Guidance

  • Individual meetings for Career counseling / CV-Check

University staff is available for individual meetings (online or in presence),  to support you to search for job opportunities, to plan a professional career and in other topics connected to the career guidance.

During the individual meeting it is possibile to have a review of a CV/cover letter, to verify whether these documents have been filled correctly and if they are in line with the student's professional project. Moreover, the service can offer advices in order to improve your CV and your cover letter.

A CV is a really important document, such as a jobseeker's business card beacause it influences the recruiter's impression of a candidate. Some web tools, like Canva (to browse different model from Europass) or the European dictionary of skills and competences DISCO (to research specific skill-related terms) can be really useful to improve your CV.
