Target Audience:  Early Career Researchers (PhDs and Postdocs)

The current health situation has certainly provided some people with the time to stop and think a little about their career and what they need to focus on instead of their previous routines.  We appreciate that everything seems to be confused and on hold at present but that shouldn’t mean that you don’t consider your career development needs.

So, when it comes to a longer-term career plan, how and where do you even start?

In this focused webinar, tailored to research and led by a former academic, we will focus on the different elements of career planning and help you to identify the steps you need to take and the aspects that will help you to take control of your career.

Specifically, we’ll help you to

  • identify the types of actions that will help to build your career and profile – regardless of whether you want an academic career or not
  • start to develop an action plan of what you personally may need to focus on and take ownership of
