What is BOOST?
As part of our ongoing support for researcher career development, we have launched a new programme of events on all things career. Combining a mix of guest speakers, interactive workshops, self-guided resources and recorded events we aim to equip you with the skills and confidence you need to manage your career.
Who is it for?
BOOST has a range of opportunities, some are targeted to particular audiences or career stage, for example PGRs and Research Staff, and other sessions will be available to anyone undertaking research. This is a growing programme and new events and resources are being added all the time.
When does it run?
BOOST is taking bookings now and runs until the end of 2023. There will be 2 or 3 sessions a month, with recordings or self-guided resources made available wherever possible.
What will you cover?
We will be covering a broad range of topics including:
- Careers with Peers Drop-ins
- What development looks like
- Career planning
- Interview Presentation Skills
- Preparing for fellowships
- Dynamic development
- Personal Branding
- Making the most of your development time
- Using LinkedIn
- Dealing with imposter syndrome
- Preparing academic applications
How do I book?
All the sessions and booking details are available in the BOOST programme (Opens in Sway). This is being updated regularly as we add sessions and confirm dates so make sure you keep checking it to avoid missing out. You can also keep an eye on our @ResDevLeeds Twitter account.
