GRADnet is pleased to announce a live online workshop series to explore opportunities beyond your PhD to widen your future career options.
There will be four sessions looking at what’s important to PhD graduates and postdocs now:
- Opportunities for physical sciences in industry: Find out what’s important to industry, what industry relevant skills physics-related PhD graduates possess and how to articulate your research, skills and experience to add value to a future employer and to give you the edge/impact.
- Be a problem solver – learn how to ace interview challenges: Learn how to demonstrate your problem-solving capability to potential employers. Practise delivering tangible solutions under time pressures and learn specifically what employers are looking for when hiring PhDs.
