Sat 4 March 2017, 10:00 – 15:30 GMT
Not sure what to do after your BSc/MSc/PhD? Tired of the PostDoc life? Don’t know what skills you need to do a career transition?
DISCOVER ALTERNATIVES TO ACADEMIA AND LEARN HOW TO WRITE A CV
The society of Spanish Researchers in UK (SRUK) brings you a knowledge sharing platform to support and enhance the employability of graduates and postgraduates in the private and public sector. The speakers will discuss alternative careers to academia and give you hands-on tips on how to change your career pathway.
The speakers, coming from different sectors (Science Funding Management, Scientific Editorial, Research in Industry, Research Development Management, Business Development and Start-up accelerator) will give insights into their career transitions, how is their job like, and what could you do to start a career on their field. They will also point out which soft-skills are valued in each sector.
This event will be a great opportunity to learn what “out-of-Academia” options are available out there for you, how to start focusing your career, and start expanding your network on that field.
