Dr. Verity Elston, Head of Careers Advice for Doctoral and Postdoctoral Researchers
This workshop will focus on the essentials for any application for employment in a non-academic context: putting together the practical tools of CV and cover letter.
In addition to addressing the different elements to include in application material, we will explore:
This workshop is split into two short meetings of 2.5 hours each. This format will give participants the opportunity to create and have feedback on their own CV and cover letter aimed at a potential position.
On our first day, we will review the job ad, cover letter and CV. This will allow participants to put together their own mock application in the following days. On the second day, we will work in small groups to feedback on each other's application material.
Resources will be provided to assist participants in finding job ads relevant to them for this assignment. If you have a job ad (past or present) you would like to work with, you are free to use it. Opportunities should be for posts beyond the academic track.
For you to participate effectively in this workshop, you should already have attended the 'Career Café'.
Participants are required to attend for both days of the workshop.
Tuesday 28th April and 5th May, 14:30 to 17:00.
This workshop is organised in priority for postdocs.
Doctoral candidates will find a similar offer through the CUSO Transversal Programme. If you request registration for this workshop you will be placed on a waiting list. If a place is available in the weeks prior to the first meeting, we will contact you to confirm your participation .
This workshop is designed to follow on from the Career Café. If you have not yet attended a Career Café with the Graduate Campus, you will be asked on registration to explain when and how you have already received career-related counseling or training, whether in a group or individually.
