In a highly competitive world, securing any academic post is difficult. Getting a foot on the ladder and securing a first academic post in this context can seem especially daunting. Excellent subject knowledge, research and teaching skills are a good place to start, but a lack of know-how and experience in the application process often leads to ‘all being lost’ in the paperwork. Followed carefully, the advice given in this session will stop that happening. Delivered by an academic of 20 years standing – eight of which were spent (very successfully) advising PGT/R relative to academic job applications – the session will focus on a number of relevant issues, including the need to establish an academic identity, how to recognise a ‘gettable’ post, and particularly the generation of effective and job-tailored application paperwork (including CV’s, personal statements, and covering letters). The structure and nature of academic interviews will also be discussed. Will attending this session secure you a first academic post? No. But it should improve your chances of being interviewed, and that’s a very big step in the right direction.
