Science Career Jumpstart

Do you already have the skills (e.g., lab skills and calculation skills) for the science job you want, but not the skills (e.g., CV crafting skills and interviewing skills) to get the job?  If so, the Science Career Jumpstart might be right for you.  (If you do not yet have the skills to do the job, you might benefit from one of our programmes.)  Since this one week Jumpstart is given in New Zealand, it is only available to people living in New Zealand.

We offer a short-course that focuses on finding a science job.  We will only accept participants into the Jumpstart who we have reasonable confidence can land the sort of job they are wanting within 6 months of the end of the Jumpstart.

The Jumpstart fee is $950 (including morning & afternoon tea, and lunch), which is not inexpensive.  However:

  • Please compare that with the cost of an extra six months without a job.
  • If you find the sort of job you are looking for prior to the start of the short-course, we will give a 100% refund.
  • We are sufficiently confident of results that if a participant does not get the sort of job they want within 6 months of the end of the Jumpstart, we will give that participant a 100% refund.

(Details of the 100% refund promise will be included in acceptance letters.)

The Jumpstart will be strictly limited to 8 participants so that each can get individual attention.

The Jumpstart is usually held at our Learning Centre in the CBD of Palmerston North and runs one week.  When there is sufficient interest elsewhere, we are willing to offer the Jumpstart elsewhere.  Some follow-up services will be offered during the six months after this course.

If you have questions about this short-course, please feel free to contact us.
