Some thoughts for the job searchers amongst us
In this morning's session we said we would follow up with thoughts on how to help those on this training currently job searching, so here are some thoughts
I know there are a good few of you on this training who are currently job searching, some of you are early career, some are switching careers. We discussed in this morning's live session about ways we can support each other in this. So here are a few thoughts from me but please feel free to add others.
- In the half-hour before the live sessions next week (on the 22nd) let's do an interview prep exercise. So at 9.30 am and 5.30 pm BST. If you are keen, prepare an answer to the following potential interview question: "Can you explain how the project management training you list on your CV can help a project have conservation impact?”. Then we will split into breakout rooms to practice this and give feedback to each other. Yes, it is a little bit awkward practising interview questions, but we are all friends now and no one will be judging you!
- A lot of you are probably familiar with Conservation Careers, but if not I highly recommend having a look at what they do. We run joint residential courses with them and they are lovely humans. Lots of advice on there and they run an online course about finding a job in the conservation sector.
- Sharing tips - please share any tips you have for job searching and applications as replies to this post.
