Book a time for personal counselling

We offer personal counselling for career planning and job searching. Specialist Torbjörn Strand helps international students in career related matters. You can book a time for him through Moodle. The guidance takes about 45 minutes.

Career counselling is useful for you if you want to clarify your career plans. In the counselling, we will focus on your professional skills and strengths. To prepare for the counselling, please fill out the kudin-survey for self-assessment. You can sign in to the survey with your university credentials. Take the results with you to the counselling session or send them to the counsellor beforehand. This provides a basis for the discussion.

When you are aiming to get an internship or a work placement, you can book a time for job search counselling. There, you will get advice on where to find suitable internships, how to apply for a placement or how to prepare for a job interview. Before the counselling, you can send your job application and CV to the counsellor beforehand via email so that they can give personal feedback.
