In this episode of bookcareers Live we discuss our Virtual Careers Clinic at the London Book Fair.

Usually at the London Book Fair we bring together a room full of publishers HR departments and industry Recruitment Consultants and let you have quick one to one chats with them.

This year, in line with the Online London Book Fair, we’ve taken our Careers Clinic virtual too.
In this episode of Live, we outline how we envisage the Virtual Careers Clinic will work, and let you know what to expect.

We also run through several other items about projects we’re working on at the moment. So if this is your first introduction to, do listen to the end.
