PhD Job Club Tutorials are small, informal group sessions led by the PGR Careers Adviser. They offer a chance to discuss popular career-related issues amongst PhDs.

This particular tutorial focuses on writing effective CVs/ job applications. We'll first cover some top tips, then you will have time to work on your CV or application with the support of the Adviser and the rest of the group.

Open to PhDs from all disciplines!

Attend just for the tutorial (first hour) or also stay afterwards to work on your application/ CV and get individual advice.

Please note: this event is for postgraduate researchers only.
