Post-PhD employment: what are you good at?
The first Pomodoro Break course will focus on the skills you have developed during your doctoral studies that are of interest to employers, especially employers outside universities. Rest assured - you have heaps to offer! But sometimes it takes practice to work out how to translate what you know into language that can be understood outside academia. We will work through a range of areas; by the end of the week, you'll be able to translate your skills for all kinds of employers.
By the end of this mini-course you will be able to:
- Identify your key employability skills
- Understand the key skills sought by employers outside academia
- Provide examples of how/when you have demonstrated those skills
Pomodoro Breaks – a professional development snack in your coffee break
What is it?
Pomodoro Breaks are designed to give you bite-sized morsels of useful information while you are enjoying a coffee break from your studies. Each topic will run over a few days, and we'll invite you to join the conversation.
When is it?
The course will run over a week, 24 - 28 June 2019. Please register your interest, by 5pm Thursday 20 June.
How does it work?
When you register, we'll send you a link each day to a short blog post that provides some stimulating reading, links to relevant material, provocative questions and useful activities. All up, the reading and responding will take 20-30 minutes - just enough time to drink your coffee.
