It's been awhile since I blogged mainly due to a busy summer of consultations with members. We are also now about to start travelling around the UK for our local hubs and so we look forward to seeing you in Oxford, Bristol, Edinburgh, Manchester and Norwich if you've booked an appointment with us.
On top of that we are finalising plans for ChemCareers
which is going to be a great week, covering a variety of themes, such as 'Getting into Teaching,' 'Returning to Work after a career break,' and advice on applying for jobs. We also have a number of brand new videos from the careers team.
Over the weekend I came across this useful article
about how to deal with that dreaded question at the end of an interview ............. "Have you got any questions for us?"
My advice, as in the article, is always to have something prepared, but not to ask about matters that can be dealt with outside the interview. Remember an interview should be a conversation, so you want to demonstrate genuine interest in the role and commitment to the organisation and asking the right questions at the end of the interview can help you do this.
