It’s recruitment season right now, so although I’ve seen lots of postgrads over the last few weeks, I’ve organised some more sessions to help you with your CVs and applications, interviews and assessment centres.
Click on the titles below for more info, then click on “More information” to sign in to CareersLink and register for the event.
Also, just to clarify, these are sessions for students who are currently doing a Masters or PhD (or who have already finished their postgraduate degree), who are now looking to move on to a job or further study. They’re not aimed at undergraduate students who want to get on to a postgraduate course – that’s covered in our normal CV and interview sessions for undergrads.
Here’s what’s coming up:
Interviews for Postgraduate Masters
Monday 5th November, 12-1pm – Roscoe Building, Room 1.007
Interviews for PhD Researchers
Wednesday 7th November, 12-1pm – Room 3.210, University Place
CVs and Applications for Postgraduate Masters – Q&A
Wednesday 7th November, 2-3pm – Room 5.206, University Place
NB: This session will have a few introductory slides, but then it’s over to you – the chance to have your questions about CVs and applications answered. If you don’t have any questions, it’ll be a short session!
CVs and Applications for PhD Researchers – Q&A
Friday 9th November, 2-3pm – Room 6.208, University Place
NB: As above, this session will have a few introductory slides, but then it’s over to you – the chance to have your questions about CVs and applications answered. If you don’t have any questions, it’ll be a short session!
Assessment Centres for Postgraduates (Masters and PhDs)
Tuesday 13th November, 12-1pm – Schuster Building, Bragg Theatre G28
Academic Careers – Getting Started
Thursday 22nd November, 12-1pm – Room 4.211, University Place
If you can’t make it to the sessions, you can always get slides and my audio commentary for the CVs, Interviews and Assessment Centres topics in our online talks – but if you come along, you can get your questions answered.
