Creation of an individual coaching plan

A well-thought-out coaching plan is at the heart of successful AVGS job application coaching. This plan is individually tailored to your needs and goals and ensures that you receive the best possible support on your way to a new job. This section explains the steps involved in creating an individual coaching plan: analyzing your current situation, setting goals and developing a tailored plan.

Analysis of the current situation

The first step in creating a personalized coaching plan is to conduct a thorough analysis of your current situation. This includes evaluating your professional experience, qualifications, strengths and weaknesses. A good coach will take the time to paint a comprehensive picture of your career to date and identify the specific challenges you face.

At this stage, it can be helpful to rely on various evaluation techniques, such as personality and ability tests. Such tests can provide valuable insights into your career preferences and skills, providing the basis for customized coaching. External resources such as the [Glossary of key AVGS coaching terms]( should also be used to gain a better understanding of the relevant terms and processes.

Setting targets

Once you have analyzed your current situation, the next step is to set clear and achievable goals. These goals should be specific, measurable, attractive, realistic and time-bound (SMART). An experienced coach will help you to define and prioritize your professional goals.

It is important to set both short and long-term goals. Short-term goals could be to optimize your application documents or to prepare for an upcoming interview. Long-term goals could include developing specific skills or achieving a certain position within a company. An excellent example of this is our article on the [criteria for selecting a coach](, which also discusses the importance of goal setting.

Development of a customized plan

The final step is the development of a customized coaching plan. This plan contains the specific actions and strategies that will help you achieve your defined goals. An effective coaching plan is regularly reviewed and adjusted to ensure that it remains up to date and meets your needs.

A customized plan could include various components, such as:

1 **Optimize application documents**: Professionally revise the resume and cover letter to ensure they meet current standards and highlight your strengths.
2nd **Interview training**: Prepare for common interview questions and improve your appearance in a job interview.
3. **Network building**: Develop strategies to expand and strengthen your professional network.
4 **Training opportunities**: Identify and take advantage of continuing education opportunities to enhance your qualifications and skills.

A customized coaching plan is crucial for long-term success and can help you achieve your professional goals efficiently and effectively. For more information on developing a customized coaching plan, you can also visit the [TÜV Rheinland website](

In summary, a personalized coaching plan is the foundation of successful AVGS job application coaching and should always be tailored specifically to the goals and needs of the individual. From analyzing your current situation and setting clear goals to developing and implementing tailored strategies, every step is designed to maximize your chances on the job market and support you on your path to career success.

Optimization of the application documents

One of the most important phases in the application process is optimizing your application documents. This step is crucial because it gives potential employers their first impression of you. Well-designed application documents can be the key to being invited for an interview. This section discusses in detail the essential components of your application documents - the CV, cover letter, references and certificates - and how you can optimize them.

Curriculum vitae

The CV is one of the key documents in your application. It should be clearly structured and easy to read so that the recruiter can see your qualifications and professional experience at a glance. Here are some tips for optimizing your CV:

1 **Clear structure and design**: Make sure the design is appealing and easy to read. Use clear headings and avoid unnecessary details. A well-structured CV increases readability and makes a professional impression. You can draw inspiration for the design from [Tips for a successful application in Germany](

2 **Chronological order**: The information on your resume should be listed in reverse chronological order, meaning the most recent experience is at the top. This helps the recruiter to immediately see your most recent and relevant positions.

3 **Concrete details**: Make sure you provide specific details about your tasks and achievements. Facts and figures are particularly effective here, as they make your achievements measurable. For example, instead of simply writing "project management", the statement "management of a project with a budget of €500,000" could be much more meaningful.

For more advice and templates, see [Stepstone's guide]( to help you make the most of your CV.

Cover letter

The cover letter is your opportunity to express your interest in the position and emphasize your suitability. It should be personal and individually tailored to the position in question. Here are some important points:

1 **Personalization**: Avoid standard phrases and personalize your cover letter to the position and the company. It is best to start by addressing the contact person directly.

2 **Motivation and qualifications**: In your cover letter, you should make it clear why you are interested in the position and how your qualifications and experience match it. Point out which specific skills you have that are relevant to the advertised position.

3 **Structure and clarity**: The cover letter should be well structured and written in understandable language. A clear structure with an introduction, main body and conclusion makes it easier for the reader to understand your message.

You can find detailed instructions and templates in the []( guide, which shows you step by step how to write a convincing cover letter.

References and certificates

References and certificates are an important part of your application documents as they prove your previous professional experience and achievements. Here are some tips on how to present these documents in the best possible way:

1. **Relevant references**: Select references that are relevant to the position you are seeking. Ideally, they should be people with whom you have worked closely and who can assess your professional skills well.

2 **Structure your references well**: Make sure your references are well organized and complete. They should be filed in reverse chronological order to highlight your most recent activities.

3 **Current and complete**: Make sure that your references and certificates are up to date and complete. Outdated or incomplete documents can leave a negative impression.

A useful overview of what should be included in references can be found at [Tolingo](, which offers tips and tricks for successful applications in Germany.

By carefully and thoughtfully optimizing your application documents, you increase your chances of standing out and being invited to an interview. Every component of your application helps to convey a complete and convincing picture of you as a potential employee.

Preparation for job interviews

Preparing for job interviews is an essential step in the application process. It helps you to present yourself more confidently and convincingly. Thorough preparation includes dealing with possible questions, practicing your appearance and effectively following up the interview. In this section, we look at the most common questions and answers, how to behave and present yourself correctly and how to follow up the interview.

Frequently asked questions and answers

Being well prepared for frequently asked questions can help you stay calm and composed during the interview. Some of the typical questions are:

1 **Tell us something about yourself**: This question usually serves as an icebreaker and gives you the opportunity to introduce yourself. Focus on your professional achievements and experience that are relevant to the position you are applying for. Avoid going into too much detail and focus on a clear and concise overview.

2 **Why did you apply to us? Here it is important to show your motivation and interest in the company and the specific position. Inform yourself thoroughly about the company in advance and think about how you can contribute your knowledge and skills.

3 **What are your strengths and weaknesses? This question assesses your self-reflection and honesty. List strengths that are relevant to the position and weaknesses that you are already working on. An example could be: "I am currently working on improving my time management skills by prioritizing tasks more effectively."

Behavior and appearance

Your behavior and appearance during a job interview are just as important as your answers to the questions. Here are some tips that can help you:

1 **Body language**: Make sure your body language is open and confident. Maintain eye contact, smile and use gestures to emphasize your words. Avoid sitting cross-legged or making nervous gestures.

2 **Dress**: A professional appearance is essential. Find out about the company's dress code in advance and dress accordingly. A well-groomed appearance leaves a positive impression.

3 **Punctuality**: Show up on time for the interview. Plan enough time for your journey and arrive a little earlier rather than too late. Arriving on time shows your reliability and your interest in the position.

4 **Self-presentation**: Practice how you present yourself and your skills. This also includes presenting your professional successes and experience in a clear and structured way. A well-practiced elevator pitch can be very helpful here.

Follow-up of the interview

Following up an interview is an often neglected but important part of the application process. Here are some steps you should take after the interview:

1 **Collect feedback**: Immediately after the interview, write down your impressions and evaluate how well it went. What worked well? Where could you improve? This self-reflection will help you to be even more confident in future interviews.

2 **Thank you letter**: Send a brief thank you letter to the interviewer within 24 hours of the interview. Thank them for the opportunity and reiterate your interest in the position. A brief and polite thank you letter shows your professionalism and can leave a positive impression.

3 **Contact us**: If you do not hear back within the period agreed in the interview, do not be afraid to follow up. A friendly phone call or e-mail shows that you are still interested in the position.

By following up the interview correctly, you can leave a lasting positive impression and increase your chances of being hired. The [Stepstone magazine]( offers a comprehensive guide to interview preparation and follow-up.

Preparing for a job interview is essential for your success. Whether it's practicing frequent questions, becoming aware of your own body language or conscientious follow-up - every step helps you to leave a positive and lasting impression.

Networking and online presence

In today's world of work, networking is invaluable and online presence is a crucial factor for professional success.

Building a professional network

A strong professional network can open doors and create opportunities that you might otherwise never hear about. Here are some steps that can help you build such a network:
