A lecture by Katie D'Arcy, specialist careers adviser for PhDs and post-docs and former University of Cambridge careers service.
This lecture will take a look at the reality of finding and being a good candidate for academic jobs and to help you decide what you should invest your time and energy in.
There's no easy recipe for success in such a crowded job market, but there are pitfalls and dead-ends that you should know about and plan to avoid; and there are high-value activities that you need to make time for, including, but by no means limited to, getting published.
This lecture will give you a much-needed strategic overview, so that you can take charge of your own academic career development.
