How To Get The Non-Medical Job You Want – Evening Workshop

24th May 2016



The employment world outside medicine is a somewhat different ball game where national applications, OSCEs, and 10 page CVs are unheard of.

If you’re looking to change your career, this workshop will provide you with the basic skills to navigate through somewhat alien processes into a job you love.


  • How recruiters scan CV’s
  • How to write a cover letter
  • Tips on how to write and present a non medical CV
  • Techniques on how to promote yourself on paper and in interviews
  • Top tips on how to succeed in an interview (the ‘soft’ skills make the difference!)
  • Network and hear stories from others who have made the leap

The presentation will be made by:
