In this workshop we will discuss andpractice (digital) job interviews and psychometric tests. For job interviews, we will discuss what questions you can expect, which behaviors you’re supposedto display, and how your answers will be evaluated. For psychometric tests, we will discuss the principles behind tests and what you’re legally allowed to request. Throughout our discussions, we will have small exercises in which you will learn about yourself and the image you portray to your potential employers.
