Training interview NWO/ERC via Skype
Sometimes planning a face-to-face interview training is not an option. You stay abroad until just before the interview at NWO or ERC or a pandemic comes in the way. Our training via Skype is a proven alternative.
This training helps you to create a strong presentation and to prepare for the Q&A. Starting from your project proposal, the reviews and your rebuttal, we formulate a strategy. Then we gather the strong points in your cv and proposal and compose a story line in which they naturally come across.
After creating a convincing story, we help you with the slides. Usually you make a first draft using the input of the first session which we then further improve. We work on for example fonts, colours, and alignment, but also we can help you to visualize your ideas. This can take a few feedback rounds (you can also ask the people around you to give their opinion) in which we step by step approach the perfect presentation.
If you want to (and if the circumstances allow it) we can plan a brief face-to-face meeting to work on the presenting itself. We discuss matters such as use of voice, body language, interaction, and how to deal with nerves. In the past ten years we trained hundreds of candidates who prepared for their interviews at both NWO (e.g. Veni, Vidi, Vici, Gravitation, NWO-Large) and ERC (e.g. Starting, Consolidator).
