Marketing Me: CVs and Interviews


Marketing yourself through CV, applications and in person – how to articulate, and sell, the skills and experience you are developing through your research.

No matter how you communicate with potential employers, you will have to articulate what you have gained through your PhD. Through this workshop learn what employers expect to see and hear from prospective applicants and how you can promote yourself in the most positive sell possible.

Feedback from PhD Researchers (2018)

I found it informative and important. Very useful to know a professional´s view as to how to improve our CV.
