I have attended a number of webinars on how to use a PhD, and the skills involved in completing a PhD, in future work and academic interviews. The top tips will be updated soon, but in the meantime I have recorded key resources that may be useful to PhD students looking for employment.
A blog post on how to use a PhD in future work options for arts and humanities: https://phd-careers.co.uk/2022/05/03/how-can-you-use-your-phd-in-your-future-work-options-for-arts-humanities-phds/.
Please also watch the video below to learn about how to communicate the value of a postgraduate degree:
Samantha Ford, researcher, explains in a blog post for Big Cat Agency how creative testing revealed the balance of creative and figurative communication to encourage people from the West Midlands to take up cycling (or return to it). The campaign applied multiple behavioural biases and heuristics in its design.
Samantha says: "It is so rewarding to see the culmination of collaborative efforts with Big Cat Agency in our creative testing for West Midlands Cycle. We found that while sometimes simplicity is best, clarity can still be creative. The balanced use of figurative communication in the 'Yes I Wheel' cycling campaign encourages people to take up cycling in the West Midlands region of the UK."
