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, with more time than a 1:1 appointment.

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 in light of the tips covered.

By attending this session, you will:

  • Identify the key differences between academic and non-academic job applications
  • Effectively tailor your application for a particular role
  • Work on your job application/ CV in light of the tips covered
  • Discuss any questions that you have about writing job applications
  • Meet other PhDs who are in the same position as you and learn from each other
