Pathways, Friday 7th June 2013, Renold Building (Sackville Campus), 9am – 4pm
This is your opportunity to explore and consider the range of career opportunities available to you once you’ve completed your studies.
The event will offer you the chance to hear from a wide range of speakers (from varied backgrounds, roles and organisations), all of whom have a PhD and advice to share, as well as some employers. Throughout the day we will organise around 20 different sessions covering topics such as ‘Careers in Academia’, ‘Research roles outside universities’, ‘Non academic roles in universities’; ‘Finding work overseas’, ‘Staying to work in the UK’; ‘Changing your career path’, ‘Marketing your PhD and your skills’, ‘What do employers look for in PhD applicants? and many more.
You will be able to make connections with our speakers and also with fellow PhD students from across the University - every year around 350 students attend the event.
Feedback from previous events shows that attendees leave feeling more positive and confident about the path they are pursuing, clearer about the options ahead of them and generally inspired.
It’s free to attend. Lunch and refreshments provided.
We look forward to seeing you there. Register now at: www.manchester.ac.uk/pathways
