An important part of the school is soft skills training. There will be two options for participants:
Participants are asked to select which sessions they would like to attend when they register.
The presentation session will be a day long course covering presentation preparation, vocal power skills and physical presence. It will also include giving a short presentation which will be recorded. This will be given by Elena Kaufman of Creative Communications who has given the very successful presentations skills sessions at previous GATIS network training events.
The afternoon interviews skills training will cover interviews in both academic and non-academic environments. The first part will be a two presentation and activities workshop led by Karina Septore of the TCD careers advisory service. This will be followed by two mock interviews involving participants from the school and a panel of academics. This will be followed by discussion by the panel and a Q&A.
