Finding Your Perfect Match

Target group

Students who are in the process of applying for an internship, semester abroad, scholarship, furtherstudy place, or for those preparing for their first job



  • Understanding employment as “exchange relationship” building on match
  • Understanding match in terms of social values
  • Self-assessment of own self-concept and social values
  • Assessment of company self-concept and social values
  • Addressing the match in application material



Given that successful relationships between employers and employees build on the perfect “match” or “fit”, applicants need to be able to navigate a highly complex web of requirements and offerings when taking career choices.

The workshop seeks to develop this ability by helping participants to
- assess and understand their individual interests, self-concepts and social values
- assess and evaluate the target organizations’ (companies, NGOs, universities, etc…)interests, self-concepts and social values (as communicated through job ads, corporate web-sites, etc…) in order to take informed decisions where to apply best.

Building on this comparative assessment participants develop strategies how to best address the match of interests, self-concepts and social values through their individual application material (CV, cover letter, etc…).
