Uni help with job hunting?

Can anybody point me in the direction of the best place to get help with job hunting? I'm finishing my masters at the end of the summer and will graduate in January (fingers crossed!). I've begun my job hunt but could do with some help refining my CV, and some tips managing job interviews. Thanks all!

Taking a break from research learning how to play music ?

Hi all,   I often catch myself thinking that I could use a bit of my free time to learn something stimulating and exciting. I feel a bit sad about the fact that I never had the real chance to learn how to play any instrument.

academic writing for thesis and paper

Hi all, as an international PhD student, I am wondering does anyone have any ideas about how to improve academic writing for thesis and paper?    My supervisor told me that my writing english is not native enough. Sometimes the expression is a bit akward and there are some places that he couldn't understand. It is my fault that I didn't do enough proofreading.
