first meeting with my supervisor

Hello, I'm just starting a PhD at Warwick. I have met my supervisor previously when I was applying but now I'm here I'm not sure if I should be the one to arrange our first meeting? Should I wait for them to contact me or can I set up a meeting? Is there anything I should bring to or raise at our first meeting?  I'd appreciate your advice...

To select an essay question

Hello, Joining a M.A. taught course, I have got assignments to write essays (word limit: 3500 for one, 5000 for the other). My concern is that I cannot decide which question I want to answer... Is it better to choose a topic in which I am most interested? or is it better to write the most arguable one that I can reach many academic source? It would be highly appreciated if anyone could advise me on this matter. Thank you!  :)

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!

Academic writing in a second language

Hi, I'm struggling a bit with my academic writing. English is my second language, I write and talk in day to day situations no problem but making sure my language is up to standard for my research proposals etc. is proving difficult. Is the academic writing team good for this? Has anybody else had to deal with this?  Thank you in advance.
