Careers Outside Academia day
Wed 10 May 2017, 09:30 – 18:00 BST
The Little France Postgraduate Society invite you to our Careers Outside Academia day on Wednesday May 10th.
The idea is to give us all a better understand of career options after postgraduate study.
We have arranged two panels of speakers to give their personal insights into a range of different scientific careers followed by a session for advice and support on building your professional CV. Each session will end with the chance for questions for all the speakers or there will be the opportunity to have informal discussions over coffee or lunch.
You may sign up for one, two or all of the sessions throughout the day and are more than welcome to join us for lunch and the drinks reception too.
