Pathways Day 2 – 10.30am Start

pathways2009group1Thanks to the magic of Twitter, I’ve found out that it doesn’t look like we have the programme for Monday’s Pathways workshops on the web anywhere – oops!

[EDIT: Monday morning – it was there all along, but under the Resources section of the Pathways website. Double oops! Ah well, read on if you don’t want to click there.]

If you have registered, you should have had the programme e-mailed to you, but if you were just planning to turn up (just bring your university swipe card), you won’t be aware that we’re giving you the chance for a lie-in (don’t worry, we won’t tell your supervisor/PI – let them think it starts at 8am sharp).

Programme:

10.00-10.30  Registration

10.30-11.00   Intro (that’s Judy and me again, with more explanatory details of the workshops)

11.00-12.00   Plenary workshop – VOX Coaching (…OK, I’ll admit it, I’ve forgotten the title – but it’ll be good, and funny, and relevant, they always are)

12.00-1.00     Choice of workshops – Evidencing Skills, Occupational Personality Questionnaires, Presenting at Job Interviews, Networking to Help Your Career, Interview Confidence, Assessment Centres (by Accenture), Negotiating Your Salary, Emotional Intelligence, Careers in Teaching: School vs University

1.00-2.00       Lunch

2.00-3.00       Choice of workshops – Critical Thinking Skills For Your Career, Occupational Personality Questionnaires, Marketing Your PhD To Employers, Evidencing Skills, Strategic Academic Career Planning, Negotiating Your Salary, Interview Confidence, Emotional Intelligence, Using The Web To Find Jobs (that’s me’n’Alex), Working With Others: MBTI Personality Questionnaires

3.00-4.00       Choice of workshops – Critical Thinking Skills For Your Career, Occupational Personality Questionnaires, Negotiating Your Salary, Interview Confidence, Emotional Intelligence, Working With Others: MBTI Personality Questionnaires, Getting & Keeping an Academic Job, Grant Funding Applications, Networking to Help Your Career

Some are running in lecture theatres, but they may still be very popular, so it’s first come first served. The only thing I would warn you about is that the Negotiating Your Salary workshops at 12noon and 2.00 are in smaller rooms (this format works better for an interactive workshop) but recognising it might be popular, the final session at 3.00 is in a lecture theatre, so if you don’t get in to the first two, you should get into the last one.

Think I’ve got that right, though as I’m at home and don’t have all the documentation to hand, apologies if I’ve got anything wrong. Look, just come along for the whole day anyway, you never know what you might learn…
