A written application and student works have to be convincing in any case. To give the reader a positive impression of the text at first sight, they also have to be visually attractive. Karina Rohlfing recently offered a seminar for CDTF students focusing on the confident use of WORD. With regard to the design of a curriculum vitae she had the students practice things like setting margins, using appropriate paragraph formats and tabs as well as how to insert and modify application photos. The automatic spellchecking is particularly beneficial for students who are not native German speakers.
