What is a CV / Background?

CV is a document where we summarize our education and experiences to use in job and internship applications. Derived from Latin, 'Curriculum Vitae' means "life fluency". It is used as 'background' in Turkish and 'resume' in English.

Why should you take the 'CV Counseling" service?

When we want to apply for a job or an internship, career portals are our first address.

The first step to create a background is the CV templates in these portals.

Of course, you can use this method, but this will make you nothing but one of the thousands who applied for this position.

If we look at what human resources specialists and business-world professionals say; one of the most fundamental things is; STAND OUT!

That is why a personalized background will make you stand out among other candidates.

A well-prepared background increases the chance of an interview invitation.

 

How does the "Background / CV Counseling" process work?

If you prepare a CV for the first time, you can fill in the templates on our website. If you send us after filling in, we can inform you about the corrections. Our meetings will continue until the CV is completely edited. If there is a CV that you have prepared before, we can work on that as well. Send us, and we will send you our suggestions.

Interview Counseling and Interview Simulation Advantage,

 

You have probably heard people say, 'I have been looking for an internship, I have been to numerous interviews, but I do not think it is positive.' Maybe you are one of the people who do not get a comeback.

 

Usually, after the interviews, we are given only the positive or negative results of the interview. It is not always possible to learn how the interview went. That is why it is nearly impossible to find out why the interview did not end well.

 

What did you do wrong during the interview? You might have these questions on your mind; if you asked many questions or not at all? Did you not make eye-contact or exaggerated it? You said you would do anything to 'For which position we should hire you for?' question, or your clothing was not appropriate?

 

We are here to find the answers together. We give you feedback on how you can act during an interview and answer more effectively after simulation.

 

How do we do it?

Firstly, we make appointments about the calendar,

We learn about the profession you are studying or planning to pursue, and we prepare about it,

We do interview simulations either online or in the same room with you,

Our interviews are approximately 45 minutes long,

At the end of the interview, we give you feedback on how to improve your answers, tone, ability to express yourself, what to say, and anything to better it.

 

What is the advantage?

It teaches us;

 

How we should answer which question at an interview,

How our tone should be,

How we should use our body language,

How should our gestures and mimics be,

How we should express ourselves,

How we should prepare for the interview,

How we should overcome our excitement during the interview.
