Employability Skills – with Dr Sabina Strachan of how2glu

About this Event

This graphically facilitated workshop will help you understand the relationship between ‘soft’ skills, attitudes, behaviours and ‘hard skills’, what skills and behaviours are sought after by employers, clients or funders and how to build these into your PhD experience and evidence them. We will also look at skills relevant to academic and non-academic career paths and understand commonalities and differences.

You’ll work through glucard™ activities, share experiences and identify your own strengths and employability skills. We’ll identify challenges that might affect your transition from PG research and discuss strategies and actions to overcome them.

We’ll look at different kinds of opportunities that would enable you to develop desirable skills, how to access those opportunities, and how to evidence your skills and strengths to potential employers, etc. We’ll also work through specific steps that will allow you to practise one of these strategies as individuals and in small groups, looking at the ‘managing expectations’ skill using a glucard™ tool.

Sabina will illustrate concepts, demonstrate tools by sharing live visualisations and respond to your particular experiences, questions and objectives.

Please note, you only have to attend 1 hour and 30 minutes of this course if you have already attended the CV Builder workshop.

Tickets will be released to DTP students approximately 2 months before the event; and remaining tickets will be offered to non-DTP students around one month before the event.
