Lunchtime Careers Seminars
These sessions involve two Bristol PhD alumni or previous research staff talking about their transition to a non-academic job. The focus will be on how they generated ideas for jobs, how they went about finding and applying for jobs, the important skills that they developed during their research and how these transferred into a non-academic environment, plus any other tips that they may have on how to sell yourself outside academia.
The next seminars will take place on Tuesday 9th Apirl and Thursday 2nd May 2013, 12.30-13.30 at the Careers Service.
As spaces are limited you are advised to sign-up. Sign-up will be via the events pages once speakers are confirmed.
You can find details of previous careers seminars, including presentations and audio recordings, on the Careers Service downloads
