New for 2024: IIC Career Advice Sessions

The IIC is introducing a new initiative, ‘Career Advice Session’, to support our members with their career development.

Our aim is to continue to foster an environment of generosity and knowledge and is designed to provide a platform where you can discuss various aspects of career advancement and advice.

Ran by IIC Council member and IIC Fellow, Duygu Çamurcuoğlu, participants can sign-up for a 15-minute individual 1-1 slot with Duygu. The topics for discussion are led by you and can include:
- CV’s
- Portfolios
- Navigating job applications
- Harnessing social media for job hunting
- PhD opportunities
- exploring international work experiences
- strategizing career growth.

These sessions are free and open to our Student and Early Career members. These clinics are a great sounding board and opportunity to gain guidance, perspective and constructive feedback on your career aspirations and decisions.

We always aim to be as accessible as possible, so we've set the sessions to work across multiple time zones to support members across the world.

Session 1: Thursday 22nd Feb: 9.30am – 11.00am (GMT/ UK time) - deadline for registration is 19 February 2024

Session 2: Thursday 23rd May: 2.00pm – 3.30pm (BST/ UK time)

Session 3: Thursday 24th Oct: 5.00pm – 6.30pm (BST / UK time)

If you need assistance with time conversion, we recommend this website here.

We only have 6 sessions per clinic available so sessions will be on a first come, first served basis. To register for a slot for May's session, then please register for a ticket via Eventbrite here 

The deadline to register is Monday 19 February.
