CV Builder

10th February 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm

10 & 11 Feb 2021

19:30 – 20:45 GMT

‘CV Builder’ with Dr Sabina Strachan of how2glu

About this Event

This workshop will help you understand how to develop relevant experience and demonstrate competencies by working through individual and group activities to identify approaches for different careers paths, explore different kinds of CV and how to find helpful resources.

(Note: this session is a good follow on from the ‘employability skills’ workshop).

We’ll look at examples of chronological, skills-based, academic, project-based and portfolio CVs and talk through what options are going to work best for you. You’ll then capture your career goals in terms of values, motivations and working environment. And then we’ll then look at five sought-after transferable skills – communication, confidence, expectation management, flexibility and optimism – and ways you can enhance, develop and evidence them through your PhD experience.

You will create a glucard™ CV builder to capture your transferable skills, experience and examples. We’ll work through common issues and barriers and Sabina will share examples of different career journeys and modes of presentation, graphically facilitate the session, demonstrating key learning and tools and link further resources.

This course is run over two evenings (10 & 11 February) from 19:30-20:45 each night.
