The student will be able to:
- reflect on her/his professional abilities

This course prepares for the transition from being a student to mathematician, physicist or astronomer on the job.
It comprises four half-day sessions in which the student is trained to reflect on her/his own abilities, preferences for employment and on matching these. Under the guidance of the trainer a CV and a letter of application will be composed and commented on in a group process. Presentation as a job candidate to a selection board will be practised with students both in the role of the applicant and member of the selection board.
The instructor of the course will be a professional trainer from the RU Student Affairs Office.
