Does your CV pass the 10-second test? Is it good enough to make it to the shortlisted pile? Register, sign up for a free CV review and get tailored advice about how to further improve it.

New career coaching slots have been released. Do you need help identifying your value as a professional? Would you like advice on how to navigate through difficult career decisions? Do you want to hear an outsider’s perspective on how and why you stand out from your peers? Register, book a 20-minute face-to-face talk with a career coach and discuss your most urgent career question.

Our workshop programme tailored exclusively to the needs of doctoral candidates and postdoctoral fellows, has been updated. Check it out here.

Doctoral candidates who would like to have their job fair attendance recognised as a transferable skills seminar (cluster ‘career management’), are expected to combine their visit to the fair with (registered) participation in at least 2 other activities (workshops, CV analysis, speed career coaching). Check the website for further practicalities.
