Who should attend

This session is for all staff.


When applying for a new opportunity, you will need to sell your skills through your CV, application form, personal statement, or cover letter. These documents can be challenging to write effectively to get the hiring manager's interest and progress you to the next stage of the recruitment process.

This session is run by the Careers Service, which provides career guidance and application support for our current students and recent graduates. This session has been specially tailored for staff looking at new opportunities within Imperial or externally.
