A.5.8 "It’s a jungle out there." Online Job Portals and How to Use Them (2 stamps)

Are you currently looking for an internship or job? Or, will you be doing so in the near future? If so, you will probably be using online job portals in your search. Maybe you already know Monster, Stepstone, or Kimeta – but are those the right sites for you? This short seminar is for you if you find yourself nodding in agreement to one or several of the following questions:

  • Do you find it hard to choose from the more than 2,000 online job portals?
  • Do you feel like you are searching in the wrong place?
  • Do you wonder how to find the most suitable job portals for your needs and ambitions?
  • Do you feel like you are missing relevant offers?
  • Do you need some quick-check criteria for judging the quality of a job portal?

This 90-minute seminar will point out strategies for finding the most appropriate job portals for your search, and it will provide you with criteria to quickly judge a job portal’s value and quality. The goal is to introduce you to tools that can help make your search both effective and efficient. By applying these tools to an example, we will show you how to make them work for you. Please take 10 minutes in advance to reflect on the following questions:

  • What is my experience with online job portals?
  • Which sites/options do I know about?
  • What do I find difficult, questionable, or complicated about them?
  • What knowledge, skills, ideas or tools do I want to take home from this seminar?

Who can take part?

All those who are currently studying or doing their doctorate at the University of Münster or who passed their final examinations at the University of Münster during the past year.
