    Online career counselling - how do I book a session?

    If you do not have the opportunity to meet physically in Aalborg or Copenhagen, you can book an online session instead.

    Online career counselling takes place on an online platform - e.g. Skype, Teams, or Zoom.

     

    Here's how you do it:

    1. Book an online session in the booking system - use one of the links below.
    2. Before the meeting you will receive a calendar invitation with a link to the meeting.
    3. In the invitation you will see what platform will be applied.
    4. You can open the link in the programme itself or in a browser. Having the programme installed is not a prerequisite - however, it often works better if it is.
    5. Please check the link well in advance to make sure your microphone and camera work. You may need to install a plugin.

     

    If it does not work, you may try:

    1. Check if your internet connection is working and has a reasonable speed. If necessary, try this tool (in Danish) to check your speed.
    2. Preferably use internet via cable. Wifi can also work, but if possible please avoid internet sharing over the phone.
    3. Check if your browser has been updated to the latest version.
    4. Try another browser.

    A session takes up to 45 minutes.

    Group career counselling - how do we book a session?

    If you and e.g. your friendswho have the same career-related questions, a group counselling session may be helpful. It could be regarding general topics such as CV, LinkedIn or internship search. If your considerations are more personal, we recommend an individual career counselling session.

    You can learn a lot from hearing each other's questions and considerations, and a group session can therefore help to inspire you, for example, in the work with your CV.

    A group tutorial is for 2 - 7 people, and you do not have to be in a project group, in the same study programme, or on the same semester.

    A group career counselling session can take many forms - e.g.:

    • Possibly with your project group
    • Maybe with one or more from the same study programme - or maybe another programme
    • Among other things, with some people from the same semester - or from other semesters

    NOTE: Due to restrictions all group session are online at the moment. Find information and tips for online counselling.

    A group session usually takes up to 45 minutes.
