Career Bites – for Newcastle University research staff

Posted on

Career Bites for Research Staff

These lunchtime sessions will provide an informal forum for research staff to come together and discuss questions, queries and concerns about an aspect of their career planning.

Facilitated by the Research Staff Careers Adviser, Rachael Roberts, each session will aim to address the needs of those that attend and the issues they raise. You can come along and ask questions, contribute suggestions, share documents you are working on relevant to the topic or to listen to the discussion. The aim of the sessions is to provide you with input and feedback on an issue in the way that you need at that point in time, rather than deliver a generic workshop that may not be appropriate for you.

Each session has a theme including; CVs and Cover Letters, Application Forms and Supporting Statements, Interviews and other selection methods, Networking and developing contacts.

Research Staff from all faculties are encouraged to attend. You are welcome to bring your lunch with you!

Research students should look at their own faculty programmes (HASS, FMS and SAgE) and book onto the courses organised for you!
