Zoom (video conference) Victoria Australia
$9.90

Description Academia isn’t for everyone. Yet, the academia can make some people feel like doing a PhD = staying in academia for ever. And, for others, leaving the academy is a last resort. Through no fault of yours, an ongoing academia career is not possible. And, other still, have different reasons for leaving. At the very least, the data says most MUST leave. Each year, about 5,000 students graduate, but the number of academic positions only grows by 1,200! In…

Presentation skills

February 15 @ 09:00 - 09:45 AEDT

People can think you're either "good" or "bad" at presenting. But I think the truth is that you can get better (or worse). And, through practice you can improve. In this FREE Tuesday Talk, I'll go through some of the things I do when preparing a talk. I'll cover what I think is important when it comes to presenting your research work. And, I'll suggest an approach to try, next time you give a talk. As usual, attendance is FREE,…

Writing your resume – WW2022

February 16 @ 12:30 - 13:15 AEDT

Description Resume writing is a dark art. And it really doesn’t matter how good you are at it – until you actually need it! Then, it feels like there is so much you don’t know. It doesn’t have to be that way. You can learn about resume writing now, so that you can be prepared for later. Yes, there’ll be trends. Yes, there’ll be fashions. But the overall ideas and principles will remain the same. In this workshop, you’ll show…

Being more productive

February 22 @ 13:00 - 17:00 AEDT
Zoom (video conference) Victoria Australia
$99

Description Every academic is looking to be just that bit more productive. Whether it is in writing grants, or marking papers, or writing articles or just collecting more data. But the question is how? For most people, the answer tends to be longer work hours. Either coming in early. Staying on later. Or working on the weekends. Or even all THREE! But, I don’t think that is necessary – let alone healthy – in order to be competitive/successful as an…

Finding a job – 2022

February 23 @ 12:30 - 13:15 AEDT
Zoom (video conference) Victoria Australia
$9.90

Description Finding a job, looking for work, they are easy to say but hard to do. Sometimes if feels like nothing is going to come through. Hiring managers don’t acknowledge your application. Jobs get re-advertised and you didn’t even get an email back saying you weren’t what they were looking for. The whole process sucks! In this workshop we’ll discuss different approaches to finding work. How some are easier (and also better) than others. And what you can do to…

Identifying transferable skills

March 2 @ 12:30 - 13:15 AEDT
Zoom (video conference) Victoria Australia
$9.90

Description When most people think about jobs outside their area of expertise, they immediately jump to ideas of “retraining”. Instead, I think people should be looking at the similarities between what they do now and what they want to do. To focus on what is transferable. And, in my experience the problem is rarely “lack of transferable skills” but inability to identify what skills are transferable (or what parts of what skills are transferable). In this workshop, I’ll walk through…

Managing email

March 16 @ 12:30 - 13:15 AEDT
Zoom (video conference) Victoria Australia
$9.90

Description I once met an academic who said “if someone doesn’t send me two emails about something, I know it is not important”. Luckily, when I wanted or needed something I was able to ask (rather than email). But, I imagine dealing with this approach as a sender, would be infuriating. And, dealing with this as the academic, I imagine, would slowly lead all senders to send even more email. Compounding the problem. Email is an integral part of work…
