Postdoc Workshops

Creating the post-doc's job-hunt package: finding opportunities outside the university and building applications

Introduction
This workshop reviews the current employment situation, helps participants consider their options and goals and prepare for a non-academic career path, whether in the private or public sector.

The workshop is organized over two days, with a two-week interval during which participants will develop their job-search portfolio. The workshop will include:

  • How to identify the parameters of their job-search: their skills and interests, goals and methods
  • How to identify potential employers and possible employment opportunities, reviewing job ads
  • How to develop their networking and online resources, talking about themselves and asking questions, and understanding how to be "in the right place, at the right time" for the hiddeen job market
  • Creating the elements of a CV and of a cover letter in a non-academic context: content, style, structure and purpose
  • Preparing for the interview (questions, expectations)

Prior to the workshop, participants will be asked to complete a job-search preparation document and to return it to the trainer for feedback. Details will be provided one month ahead of the workshop.

On the first day, participants will gain an understanding of how to approach the job market (where doctorate holders work, the paths they take in their careers, the interaction with employers), and how to build the elements of their application. In the interval period, participants prepare for the second day by creating the first draft of their job-hunting strategy: identifying job-finding opportunities relevant to their own situation, writing a CV based on the first day's work, and the template for their own cover letter.

In advance of the second day's activities, they will send their CV and cover letter to the trainer. On the second day of the workshop, participants will review their job-seeking strategy together, and receive personalized feedback on their CV and cover letter. They will then discuss and explore the ways in which they can develop their network, find out more about unknown or unexpected opportunities, and present themselves to potential employers. We will also review interview preparation: the questions that can be asked, the essential points to remember.

Participants will also have access to supplementary advice material covering the subjects we discuss during the two days.

Target population
UNIL Post-docs who have decided to leave the university environment, or who are seriously considering their options.

The language of the workshop is English. Participants may prepare their work in French if they prefer (with the exception of any work that is to be shared with the group).

Trainer
Director of Portfolio Formation Sàrl and of the CUSO programme in transferable skills, Verity Elston has broad professional experience in the private and public sectors in several countries, including in middle- and high-level recruitment. She holds a doctorate in Sociocultural Anthropology from the University of Chicago and the FSEA Certificate 1 as a trainer of adults. She conducts ongoing qualitative and quantitative research and analysis on the career paths of doctorate holders in Switzerland and in Europe.
