Pathways Career Options for PhDs and Research Staff

Pathways is back and this year we have dozens of panelists, all with PhDs, that have branched out into a wide range of different careers. Whether you are thinking of joining the NHS, continuing your research in industry or hoping to secure an academic position there will be someone for you to talk to.

Day 1 (12th June) comprises of a series of panels ranging from lab based jobs, media and publishing, academic careers, banking and finance, teaching, communicating science, museums and libraries, business start up and more. You have the opportunity to discuss with the panel what skills they think are important for their role, how they have secured their job and much more.
Following this is a second day of workshops (15th June), from drama based presentations on increasing your interview confidence, discussions on marketing your PhD, negotiating your salary, using emotional intelligence in the workplace to strategic academic career planning. It’s about gaining or practicing your skills to maximise your chances of success.
Finally, day three is a whole new “PhD & Researcher Zone” at the Graduate Recruitment Fair on 17th June. Here you will have the opportunity to consult with employers directly to gain insider tips or independent advice.
