Career Management: Careers Beyond Academia
- Edinburgh Campus
There are a number of options outside academia open to PhD graduates. Not everyone chooses to climb the academic ladder and throughout your PhD you will have developed a number of key skills that can be utilised in a variety of other positions. This workshop aims to highlight a number of careers outside academia and to explore what particular options might be compatible to you.
The workshop will include overviews of different job types, case studies of researchers who have moved into different careers and provide resources to help you explore your options. You will also undertake exercises to help you reflect on your own skills and experience, to enable you to communicate these effectively in written applications and interviews.
