Where do you offer your workshops?2018-09-03T10:36:54+00:00

We offer our Personality & Career Development workshops at academic institutions (universities, schools of applied sciences, business schools, private schools) that offer Bachelors, Masters, PhD, and vocational degrees, governmental agencies, non-profits, and companies in the private sector. If you have concerns whether your institution would qualify for our workshops, please get in touch.

How does career coaching work?2018-09-03T15:48:27+00:00

Our process is a hybrid of coaching and mentorship. As advisors we give you advice using a tried and tested process. We also provide you with tools and insights that help you achieve your goals. Learn more about our approach here.

Why can’t I figure this out myself?2018-09-03T15:52:56+00:00

If you are like most of our clients, job / internship search or university admissions is something you do, perhaps, a few time in your lifetime. However, we are in the business of admissions and career advisory. We have helped several hundreds of clients like yourself and helped them avoid making the same mistakes that you might be making. In other words, we have gathered a lot of experience from our successes and failures. You don’t need a career advisor or admissions consultant to land a job or get an admit at a university. Nevertheless, having a support system, an experienced team, and trusted partners like INTRVU by your side will help you reach your goals much, much faster and avoid a lot of frustrations and mistakes along the way.

Do you have references I can speak with?2018-09-03T15:46:32+00:00

Yes, we have references who would love to share their success stories with you. Some of our clients and workshop participants have shared their feedback in appreciate of the good work we delivered for them. However, we request you not to reach out to them directly and to respect their privacy. If you wish to speak to our referees, please contact us and we’re more than happy to make the introductions.

How long does an engagement last?2018-09-03T15:43:35+00:00

Typically, we strive to complete each client engagement within 6 weeks, so that you can focus on applying to opportunities, instead of waiting for our deliverables. However, this duration also depends on your timelines, goals, financial situation, and the package you purchased. We coach you as a person, not drag you through a process. This means, we adapt our engagement process to meet your constraints. Likewise, we also expect your time and commitment in the process.

Do you do coaching in person or over the phone?2018-09-03T15:39:03+00:00

Both. We primarily coach over the phone but also offer sessions via Skype / Google Hangouts. We also offer in person advisory sessions in Berlin and Heidelberg, where we operate from.

How can I purchase your service?2018-09-03T11:23:12+00:00

You can purchase our services via Paypal, Credit Card or direct bank transfer. You can choose the option during your purchase. Please note that you may incur additional charges for International payments. These charges are not included in our prices and have to be borne by you.

How long is a workshop?2017-12-30T23:21:53+00:00

Our one day workshops last anywhere between 4 and 8 hours. We have also conducted 2 day workshops. Depending on the expected outcomes, we customize the coursework, content and curriculum. Workshops spread over several days are possible.

Can you guarantee that I will land a job?2018-09-03T15:38:22+00:00

Nobody can offer such guarantees, but what we can assure you is that we will revise your application documents to get them through the Applicant Tracking System (ATS), leading to more interviews. Along the process, we also offer valuable insights to ensure that your job search process is smooth and structured.  The application process is complex and there are several moving parts (budget, finances, recruitment plans, politics, strategic outlook, etc.) within a company that are beyond our control. So, we commit only to those aspects that are within our sphere of influence – ATS and beyond. Beating the ATS will significantly enhance your chances and get your application reviewed by a human recruiter. This is the promise we make.

Can I pay for your services after I get a job / internship?2018-09-03T15:34:02+00:00

Unfortunately, we cannot deliver services before you pay for them. Our services entail significant investment in terms of time, resources and expertise. Like all organisations, we can only render our services to candidates that value our expertise and are willing to pay for our services.

Who runs these workshops?2018-09-03T11:06:24+00:00

Our advisors from INTRVU will run these workshops with the course organisers from your institution. Depending on the class size and topics covered, the number of advisors from INTRVU will grow / shrink to deliver the best learning experience for your participants.

Do you offer any discounts for students?2018-09-03T15:34:26+00:00

We understand the budgetary constraints of students. Our Guided Internships package is specially designed to serve the requirements of most students at a starkly discounted price. We don’t offer additional discounts on this package.

What is the minimum required class size?2018-09-03T11:02:18+00:00

Generally, anywhere between 30 and 90 students participate in our workshops. Each advisor can handle 30 – 50 participants in a workshop. For class sizes exceeding 30 participants, we bring in another advisor to manage the workload during workshop. To deliver more personalised attention to the participants and to deliver the most impact to your participants, we recommend that a class size does not exceed 30.

How much do you charge for these workshops?2018-09-03T11:00:11+00:00

Our workshop prices depend on the number of participants and the duration of the workshops. Get in touch with us to discuss your workshop needs, envisioned structure, topic, number of participants, etc. After understanding these details, we shall quote our rates for your consideration. Please note that travel and other overhead expenses are not included in the quote price.

What is the language of instruction in these workshops?2018-09-03T10:57:25+00:00

The admissions and job market is competitive on a global scale and we leverage the best practices from our engagements with a global clientele. Correspondingly, our workshops are delivered only in English.

When do you offer the next workshop?2018-09-03T10:50:02+00:00

We offer these workshops all year round. Please check out our events page for the next workshop. If you’d like to organise a workshop at your institution, please get in touch with us at least 3 months before the planned workshop date.

Are your workshops open for the public audience?2018-09-03T10:49:13+00:00

Our presence workshops are usually conducted at the institutions that engage us to deliver our workshops. Correspondingly, we align with the institution’s registration approach. If our client wants to organise the workshop as an open event, we will plan our workshop accordingly. On the other hand, if the client wants us to deliver our workshop to select audience, we can do that as well. Each advisor delivering the workshop can handle 30-50 participants. Correspondingly, our prices and workshop structures differ depending on the number of participants, workshop focus, and focus areas. Please get in touch with us to discuss the workshop you have in mind.

How can I organize this workshop at my university / company / institution?2018-09-03T10:40:33+00:00

If you wish to organize this workshop at your institution, please drop us an email at support@intrvu.org or fill the contact form. Please make sure that your institution is willing to fund the workshop and the  logistics, such as registrations, our fees, travel & accommodation (if required), course materials, etc. For smooth planning and organisation, we recommend getting in touch with us at least 60 days prior to the workshop.
