Individual career counselling

Individual career counselling are one-on-one sessions with a career consultant. It is the key element of the career services for PhD students and junior researchers offered by AU Career PhD & JR.

With individual career counselling, you get a better overview of your career options and what you have to offer. You also get advice on how to take action and move forward in your career development.

Which topics is it possible to discuss?

Individual career counselling are one-on-one talks that you can use to discuss topics such as:

  • Your current career
  • Alternative career options
  • Your CV and cover letter
  • Your competences
  • Job interviews

The above are just examples. All career topics are welcome.

Where will the appointment take place?

We are located at Campus Aarhus, but are happy to come to Foulum, Flakkebjerg, Emdrup and Roskilde on request.

You can select the location that suits you best in the booking system.


Can I book an online appointment?

If you are unable to attend an appointment in-person, you are more than welcome to request an online meeting.

You do so by stating it in the topic space in the booking system. We will email you a Teams link for the meeting.

Do you offer tests (personal profiles)?

Tests have become an integral part of most job interviews in both the private and the public sector. Often the test will be the starting point for a discussion of how your professional and/or personal competences are relevant for the job at hand.

Garuda's Focus Profile is a type indicator which uncovers your focus in your daily work. The profile can increase your awareness of yourself and your competences.

The profile gives you the opportunity to find out more about yourself and the way you work the best. The Focus Profile can tell you where you focus your attention in a working environment. It provides you with key words about yourself, which can be useful when creating a sharper profile in your resume and your cover letter.

Book an one hour session for a Garuda Focus Profile by using the booking link at the right. Please write "Garuda Focus Profile" in the Topic(s) space when you book an appointment.
