|Course title||Job search, CV and interview skills for research staff|
New job or direction in mind? Do you want to brush up on the practicalities of job searching, developing CVs and preparing for interviews? This workshop, designed specifically for University research staff, is for you.
A highly interactive day, it will equip you with the skills to play the ‘recruitment game’ to best effect. Emphasis will be given to understanding the processes which UK employers are increasingly using to select staff and the importance of tailoring CVs, applications and approaches accordingly. We will review the transferable nature of skills gained in research to other work environments and effective job search techniques. We will discuss and practice the skills required for effective performance at interview; preparation, self-presentation and how to deal with typical interview questions.
The workshop will cover the skills required for both academic and non-academic applications. Follow up one-to-one career discussions can then be used to review intended applications and to prepare for particular interviews.
Aim: To enable participants to develop the knowledge and skills for effective job searching, preparation of CVs, cover letters and application forms and for performance at interview.
This workshop runs as a one day workshop and across two days each term. There will be a half-day workshop for Job search, CV and cover letter skills for research staff, and another specifically for Interview skills for research staff.
