Interview and Presentation Skills for Researchers
Join us for a relaxed and practical in-person workshop designed to help you tackle interview questions and deliver impactful presentations. This session is tailored to provide research staff and DPhil students with a strong foundation of skills for applying for roles in any sector.

You will learn how to identify and prepare for typical interview questions, communicate your experience and present yourself effectively, structure and format presentations, and explore self-presentation skills supporting different styles of communication.

We will explore feedback and experiences from interview panels and your peers, and provide opportunities to practice different techniques in a supportive environment. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to improve your interview skills and secure that next step in your career!

Follow up 1:1 career appointments can be used to review intended applications and to prepare for particular interviews, included conducting mock interviews.
