For those who have been invited to a live, telephone, skype or recorded video interview, we also offer mock interviews where you can practice with one of our team and talk through the feedback they will provide.
We have a programme of Careers Consultant-led workshops on a broad range of topics, for both careers in academia and beyond academia, and also a programme of employer-led workshops, panels and networking events aimed specifically at those with a research background.
