JOBx CPH presents The Job Game!
Tuesday, October 31st!
Since JOBx CPH started (previously called "Get Your Dream Job"), the goal has always been to enable every person in Denmark to get their dream job. Started by Franco Soldera and Zubair Quraishi in 2011, and with help from many others along the way, thousands of people have joined and been inspired and supported in their job hunt here in Denmark.
With hundreds of success stories and dozens of people coming to every event we felt that there was still a way to do even more to help job seekers. In 2017 Richard Oberdieck and Tonia Michalopoulou took over and JOBx CPH was born!
In our last Meetup in June 2017 we presented our members with "The Job Game", a live, interactive competition that aims to give participants real world practice and insights to get into the job market. "The Job Game" will continue this season and will become an integral and more structured part of the JOBx CPH Meetups.
Questions that the game seeks to answer are, among others:
- How should one approach the job advert/company in order to have a better chance to be called for an interview?
- How does it look when you phone the company before an interview? Should you call? What should you say?
- What do employers/HR executives look for in a cover letter?
- What should you pay attention to in your next interview?
"The Job Game" is designed to be equally useful for fresh graduates, professionals, and senior managers. Everybody should be able to draw something from this experience, whether as a participant or a as member of the audience.
"The Job Game" is simple: bring along your "printed" CV and cover letter for a job of your choice that you want to apply for and give us a 1 minute pitch about why we should choose you to be one of our 3 game "contestants" who will go through the application process and receive valuable feedback from our judges.
Don't worry, the only one you will be competing against is ... YOU!
As a participant, this process will provide you with a unique opportunity to see yourself in a real job application setting, without the stress and risk of being officially judged for the job. Equally, as an audience member, you will get to see how the interview and application procedure look like from the outside, and will gain confidence in yourself and your abilities.
We are excited to spread the news and announce that we are holding our first Meetup for the new season on Tuesday, October 31st!
The event will take place at Founders House, between[masked].
And, yes, that day is Halloween! So in order to honor the day and in order to make some time to catch up after our long 'summer' break, we suggest that we all go grab a drink at a local bar right afterwards and ... hygge!
Don't forget, it is important that you RSVP on the event page in order for us to know how many people are attending the actual event. Only 40 people who RSVP will be able to can attend this time so it's important that you save your seat as soon as possible!
(UPDATE: We have now changed the number of attendees to 45, due to popular demand ;) )
Looking forward to seeing previous members and seeing new faces ... :)
Richard, Tonia & Zubair
