FW: Workshops on Academic CVs & Academic Interviews, London: booking now open



Dear colleague

I'm pleased to invite you to the following UCU professional development workshops taking place in London on Thursday 28 June:

Academic CVs - Thursday 28 June 09:30-12:30
This workshop will guide you through how to compile an effective, scannable academic CV: what goes in, what it's best to leave out, how to organise your information for maximum relevance and impact.

By the end of the workshop, you will know what you need to do in order to make your academic CV ready for the job market.

Academic Interviews - Thursday 28 June 13:30-16:30

There's a secret about academic interviews which hardly ever gets passed on: they are predictable. In fact, they are incredibly predictable. This workshop will explore why that is, and what, from an academic search committee's point of view, the psychology of academic interviewing really is. 

We will look in detail at common interview questions - how to anticipate them, how to prepare for them, and what a good answer sounds like - so that you have all the tools you need to perform well at your next interview.

You are welcome to apply for one or both of these courses and as ever our CPD events are free to all UCU members.

Best wishes
