Training module: job-searching skills for a career at the science-policy interface

The 5th and last training session of Inspire4Nature has now started, with the aim of improving the fellows’ job-hunting skills as they continue their career path in either academic or non-academic environments. We began with a course on the 1st June 2021, by Ana Rodrigues (senior researcher at the CNRS), Matt Jones (Head of Programme Business & Biodiversity at UNEP-WCMC) and Elise Belle (Senior Project Portfolio Officer at WCMC-Europe).

The course focused on how to read a job offer (academic and non-academic) and how candidates can tailor their CV and cover letter to best demonstrate their fit to the position. Next: fellows will be practising on real job offers and get personalised feedback on their CVs and cover letters.
