Event Details

Gone are the days when doing a research master’s or PhD meant you only had aspirations for an academic career. In fact, 60% of research degree graduates now exit academia on completion of their degree.

Whether you want an academic or non-academic career when you graduate, you need to begin your studies with the endgame in mind and be strategic about the choices you make along the way.

We know your reasons for doing a research degree are personal to you and the pathway you take through it and beyond will also be unique. In this workshop we will explore the various career destinations available, including academia, and help you start a career plan.

In this session you will learn:

  • What options are available to you inside and outside of the academy when you graduate
  • How to position yourself so you are competitive for the job you want at the end of your research degree
  • Why it’s important to develop generic (also called transferrable, professional and soft) skills as well as discipline specific skills during your studies, and
  • What steps you can take immediately and throughout your candidature to improve your chances of landing your dream role in the future.
