Applying for an academic post – applications and interviews

In this session we look at how to improve your chances of getting and interview and how to sell yourself to a selection panel. How do you stand out from the crowd when writing an application for an academic post? We will look at CVs, covering letters, and matching your skills and experiences to person specifications. We will then think about the ”formal interview” for an academic post and consider how best to prepare, who might be on an interview panel, and how to respond to questions.
