Interview Skills Workshop  Thursday 11th July   3- 5 pm Doctoral College Training Room

If applying for roles or getting ready to make applications, the more preparation you do for interview, the more likely you are to succeed.

Researchers from a range of disciplines are very welcome to both workshops, ensuring an opportunity to find out how your CV and elevator pitch, for example, might appeal to gatekeepers who are and are not specialists in your area, such as HR or recruiters. Email to sign up.
