Monthly webinars for July 2022
Webinar 1: Dr Emma Williams on How to get that next academic position
The precarious nature of academia and research adds to the already heightened competition in the field. Career development is significant and ongoing process and researchers should be equipped with more than the fundamental knowledge of their field. While they understand their career goals, researchers need help in other areas, like understanding what recruiters look for and how to navigate the recruitment process; another daunting task is getting through the interview stage.
Dr Emma Williams will take researchers through key steps to help them successfully advance to the next stage in their career. From dissecting a job description, customizing their curriculum vitae, what they need to write a good cover letter to interview prep and familiarizing participants with common interview questions. So, keep your CV handy and sign up to get that next academic position. Here are the details of the webinar:
