Using the world’s greatest jobs database….

linkedinSo many PhDs and post-docs I talk to say vaguely, ‘Oh yes, I have a LinkedIn profile, but I don’t really know why.’  Hmmmm.  Listen to my webinar next week and find out how you could be accessing massive careers inspiration and learning more about how people’s careers work.


You’ll find out:

  1. How to find out what alumni from your Department have gone on to do
  2. How to find out how people use ‘research’ or other skills, in their work
  3. How people’s careers build: how long do you stay in your first job after a PhD?
  4. Interesting job titles and names of employers you’ve not heard of before.

When: Monday 8th December, 12.30-13.15

Where: people at the CVs webinar last week were sitting in their offices, in their front rooms, drinking tea or munching on lunch!  All you need is your computer and some speakers.

Why not take part in a Webinar?

Perhaps you are finding it difficult to attend personal, professional and career development training on campus? Maybe you have other commitments which mean that the Researcher Development Unit’s face-to-face courses are sometimes inconvenient? This academic year the RDU will be running several webinars (online seminars). The webinars are designed to offer another method for accessing our training provision, as well as to provide careers advice. This year we’ll be covering topics such as how to develop your online presence, how to create an effective CV, and how to use LinkedIn.

Our webinars are listed on the RDU’s Training and Development web pages. To book a place you will need to click on the webinar title, and then on ‘more details’. This will open a page with details on how to register. You may need to download a desktop application to participate in the webinar, but this is free and details of how to install it are provided upon registering. Headphones or speakers will also be required to hear the webinar.

To view our range of webinars please click here (don’t forget to bookmark this page, and keep checking it throughout the year, as more webinars will be added). And if you have any comments, questions or requests for future webinars, please contact the Researcher Development Unit:
