NWO/ERC interview training
Did you receive the invitation to an interview at NWO or ERC? This means you are an excellent researcher with a brilliant proposal. As your competitors are. In this final stage of the procedure details really matter. A thorough preparation is of vital importance. We would love to help you with that.
We adjust the content and approach of this training to the needs and wishes of the individual candidate. For some the biggest challenge is the structure of the presentation, to others it is overcoming their fear of presenting. During an intake meeting we discuss the approach and planning. After this our support can consist on storyline, slides (we also design slides), stress, body language, interaction, use of voice, pronunciation, and answering questions.
Our support can take a sequence of shorter sessions, but also one session of four hours. The latter option is often used by Veni candidates. They usually get an invitation to the interview just two weeks in advance. We try to plan our training at the location of our clients. When this is not possible (e.g. when the candidate is abroad) we also train via Skype.
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).
