What is the Job Application Academy?
The Job Application Academy is an initiative of the recruitment team of Pauwels Consulting. At the moment our team consists of 10 recruiters. We hire engineering, pharma and IT consultants on a daily basis to lead and deliver projects with leading companies in Belgium and beyond.
Every single day we screen hundreds of resumes and cover letters. This leads to an average of 5 job interviews per day. As a result, we see many good but sadly even more mediocre and downright bad job applications. This is why we started the Job Application Academy.
The Job Application Academy is our attempt to increase your chances of success. Through the Job Application Academy we will regularly share our experiences and practicable job application tips that will help you prepare for, conduct and follow up on your job interviews.
