You Said We Did:
We need networking tips.
We've added networking resources to our office and online library and we've introduced a networking session to our workshop schedule.
The Booking system for workshops is annoying. I would like to attend lots of them, but they are always full.
We've scrapped the booking system, so now workshops are run on a first come, first served basis. We also now repeat the workshop programme throughout the academic year.
What if I need to speak to careers while I am away from the UK?
We provide appointments via skype, telephone and email.
You may be interested in exploring other career options outside of Public Health, or have additional interests that you may want to pursue in tandem with Public Health.
Here you will find advice on writing a CV, completing an application form, preparing for interview and psychometric tests.
We also hold a licence for interview simulator software, which gives you the chance to practise for interviews. Create an account and access the software here: http://interview.thecareersgroup.co.uk/
