Making Your Research Degree Work

This workshop provides participants with key strategies to plan and prepare for satisfying and rewarding careers. Universities produce vastly more graduates than they could ever employ. Postgraduate candidates should consider if the reality of an academic career suits them and, if so, how to make it happen. Candidates should also be aware of the whole range of research-related career options available, and understand the skills needed to gain entry into these careers. This series will also discuss the powerful set of transfer skills gained through HDR completion and some alternative pathways to success that can be achieved if these skills are recognised and marketed successfully. Dr Ian McLeod and Dr Andrew Chin are successful early career scientists. They have 20 years of combined relevant work experience spanning consultancies, government, NGOs, filmmaking, science communication and management. The have also interviewed scores of graduates applying for jobs in these industries.

Presented by Dr Ian McLeod and Dr Andrew Chin
