FW: Building Your Academic Career lecture, London: booking now open



Dear colleague

I'm pleased to invite you to the following UCU professional development lecture taking place in London on Tuesday 05 June.

'Building your career – the do's and don'ts of the academic job hunt'

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.

13:30 - Registration/coffee
14:00 - Lecture
15:00 - Q&A  - your chance to ask questions
15:30 - Finish

As ever our CPD events are free to all UCU members.

Best wishes

Glen Pickard
Campaigns Administrator
