Skilling up for a Career in Research

Skilling up for a Career in Research

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. PhD 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 workshop will include a discussion about the powerful set of transfer skills gained through PhD completion and some alternative pathways to success that can be achieved if these skills are recognised and marketed successfully. The workshop will be concluded with a panel discussion with representatives from different industries and an informal networking event over lunch.

NB This workshop is a revised version of the workshop previously titled Marking Your research Degree Work

Presented by Dr Ian McLeod in Townsville and Dr Andrew Chin Cairns, plus guest presenters at both.
