How to Find and Apply to Industry Roles

So I recently attended the Scismic [1] webinar on How to Find and Apply to Industry Roles This follows on from last months webinar.

Some really useful tips here on what to look for, how to match skills to roles, how to emphasise your skills / experience / expertise to the job description. Different skills and types of roles between academic and industry experience and how you add these to your CV to gain the attention of the Hiring manager.

A really good webinar. I am adapting my notes as I am not looking at working in Biotech, nevertheless the idea of the informational interview could be really useful going forward.

If you are looking for a job in Biotech. I would recommend reaching out to Erin at Scismic and seeing how they can help. They are a job matching service, so they can take your skills etc and match to possible vacancies.

Informational Interviews

So I recently attended the Scismic webinar on Informational Interviews. This follows on from the 'A summary of you' webinar from 7th May.

The webinar included an explanation on what an informational interview is, the purpose. preparation and how to go about setting on up. The difference between this and a formal interview process and the fact these interviews are about finding out about roles and not about asking for a job.

Some excellent tips were on the sort of questions to ask, the type of questions can be put in to four categories.

A really good webinar. I am adapting my notes as I am not looking at working in Biotech, nevertheless the idea of the informational interview could be really useful going forward.

Avoiding Interview mistakes

Last night, I attended a webinar on avoiding interview mistakes. This was presented by Scismic [1], who specialise in Biotechnology. However the tips and advice given are applicable across a wide range of industries.

This was really good, and lots of really useful advice which I will be using going forward in my job search.

As I first learned about Scismic, from a CV webinar, they presented in collaboration with Overleaf. I have included a link to the Overleaf webinar page. It should be possible to view a recording of this.

Overleaf Webinar write up from 09/7/2020

I attended another Webinar presented by Overleaf, the cloud based, collaborative text editor.

This webinar focused on “Organizing and Managing your Overleaf Projects”.

Again really well presented and it covered project ownership, and the rights this gives you, e.g you can't rename a project that has been shared with you.

Also covered folders and tags, the differences between project archiving and deletion. Along with more about what is found on the dashboard, searching for projects for example. Well worth taking a look at in the previous webinar recordings.

In the meantime there is a TUG virtual conference near the end of July (24th –> 26th). Please see link below for details.

Next webinar

The next Webinar is on 30th July and will cover How to Create Professional Looking Documents In-House.
