#physiotalk – Recruitment (or getting that first job!) 14th May

Looking for a new job once you have graduated can be a daunting task. We are joining with Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs who suggested this chat and is our guest host,  to help you with tips and advice for getting you the job you have trained so hard for.

The chat will be on Monday 14th May at 8.30pm BST and we are hoping that you will join in if you

  • Are just about to graduate and get your first job
  • Have recently graduated and so can offer your first hand experiences of getting your first job
  • Have experience of being interviewed
  • Have experience of recruiting and interviewing

Oh – that’s pretty much all of you then! 



We’ll be looking at the whole process (if we can do that in an hour) from writing your CV or statement of support and applying as well as the wider questions of what type of job you are looking for! We’ll then get down to the nitty gritty of the actual interview as well.

Questions to consider

  1. How do I write my CV or statement of support? What to put in and what to leave out!
  2. What type of job should I consider: permanent, temporary, locum?
  3. What else to consider with my first job? Specialities, rotational – where is the demand?
  4. How should I prepare for my interview? What are they going to ask!
  5. What about locum or bank posts – are they an option for me? What do I need to have ready for that type of post?


Missed the chat – catch up here!
