December 2011 headed by Eva Medek

A number of PhD students will finish their thesis midterm. Therefore we thought it was an appropriate time to carry out training in the preparation of job applications.
A one day workshop was led by Eva Medek, a professional career advisor, who gave guidance, both general and specific. This included direction about composing an effective covering letter, organising a portfolio (by post or e-mail), structuring a professional curriculum vitae. An important aspect was self-analysis, as this would enable us to recognise our strength and weaknesses.
As a result of this training, we feel more confident in producing meaningful job applications.
