Part Two will focus on job applications, with a focus on how to write the cover letter and CV. Part Three will focus on interviews, covering the major types of questions you can expect in an academic interview, how to prepare answers, and how to overcome the most common pitfalls, like rambling and hyper-emotionalism.
