Re: Clinical Doctorate and having babies

I've just searched 'maternity' and then in those 294 responses that come up searched training and you get some of the threads. But just a quick note when I trained 7 people in the year above went on mat leave during their training, 1 in my year and I think 5 in the below mine, by which point I think...

Re: Thoughts on graduating and trying to live independently?

Easyroommate.com and spareroom.co.uk were websites I used when I moved to a new city for a job and needed somewhere relatively cheap to rent - i.e. houseshares. Everyone in my house was a young working professional. From what I remember you can make a profile for yourself saying you want a room and ...

Re: Wearing bright colours to interviews

If it helps, when I came out of my interview I looked in the mirror - I had sweaty under arms and the weirdest botchy red pattern on my neck and chest, but my face was bright white - I looked a sight!! But I got a place. So, what I mean by sharing this is, good luck in your interview and wear someth...

Re: Being asked to 'spend' time and money pre-employment?

The DBS is something I had to pay for my first qualified job and was on all the applications I saw I think. I also was told I had to complete e learning before or within 3 days of starting my job (but was booked in for 3 full days of induction for the first week) so completed it prior to starting th...

Re: Clinically relevant Masters or an interesting one?

I'm a CP working in health. We have a department of about 12 staff, all CP's bar one (psychotherapist). While health psychologists may take a very slightly different approach to understanding and treating issues I would say there is clear overlap and it could be a very relevant masters. Another one ...

Re: Beliefs about training before starting

Like others, I thought I would finish the course feeling confident and know what to do. I hadn't expected the course to strip me down, question everything about myself, nibble away at my self-confidence and spit me out the other end. That sounds really, really, negative. I did enjoy training - have ...

Re: Stats & Methods Refresher ideas?

review your undergrad stats notes. In my experience the stats questions are not difficult or about complex maths. More research design and showing you have an understand of the issues important in producing high quality research. So yes, think about possible statistical tests and when they are used ...

Re: Applying for jobs before graduation?

Similarly, I got a support worker job immediately after uni, before getting an AP role 4 months later. I know it's not the answer you probably wanted to hear but if income is the primary driver go for a support worker role and then apply elsewhere. I don't know the extent to your previous support wo...

Re: Recruiting for an online depression survey

Another way i recruited for my project was via internet pages of related organisations and their corresponding facebook pages. I was looking for new parents so my area was a bit different but I wonder if you could approach any mental health charities and see if they will allow you to write a post/ad...

Re: The Cathartic thread - rant here!

Ha! I didn't - I submitted it at the same time as thesis - now, like you, trying to face looking at the reviewers suggestions. I have 4 unread emails from said supervisor in my inbox.....I'm waiting for her to start phoning me. (right sorry for diverting the cathartic thread, and probably filling Po...

Re: The Cathartic thread - rant here!

Nor me Loula, but I am pretty sure my supervisor will hunt me down until I capitulate and do it. You know my supervisor so you know I'm not being over-dramatic here! But keep going posie you are nearly there and maybe you will be stronger than me and just tell your supervisor no I am never looking a...

Re: Pending release to course centre

I think the application forms often get released in batches up until the end of January. I won't worry. If you submitted your application it will be processed and will get to your universities in time. Now is the time to put the form out of your mind for a couple of months before interview season ne...

Re: helpful suicide website-ethical issue?

Ruthie I really like your post, especially the honesty about how poor we are services can be at talking about suicide, I agree. I only have 2 minutes and not sure i have fully formed my opinion of the website you originally discussed. I did have a general unease about the thought of recommending the...

Re: Masters or a year of work before a doctorate?

I would agree with the comments above. I'd also say I was eager to get on training asap, and comparatively, I did get on with less experience as others....however once I was on training I saw how naive I was and how if it had taken me longer and I had gained more experience pre-qualification it woul...
