Webinar | The Power of Evidence for Landing Conservation Jobs

Does it feel like you need to be a superhuman to land a conservation job? If you’re among the 85% of conservation job seekers suffering from application burn-out without seeing results, chances are you’re not using evidence to your advantage.

Evidence is the single most powerful tool you can use to land a conservation job, but fewer than 10% of conservation applicants know how to use evidence well.

“Being in science and research, you really would have thought I would have thought about evidencing my claims about myself, but it just didn’t occur to me to do that in a CV” – Belinda Laybourne.

Don’t underestimate the importance of evidence and risk missing your dream job opportunity!

Join Conservation Careers Director Dr Nick Askew and Head of Engagement Kristi Foster for a free webinar to learn how to quickly and easily evidence your skills, and start getting noticed by conservation employers – whether you’re a graduate, career switcher or professional.

During this webinar you’ll learn:

  • What evidence is and how it can transform your applications.
  • How to identify your best evidence quickly and easily.
  • How to showcase evidence using career success stories in your CV/resume & cover letter.
  • How to use evidence whether you’re a graduate, career switcher or professional.
  • How to think outside the box and evidence your skills in creative ways.
