These guys might think it’s still time for hibernating, but there is truth in the old cliche (and I cringe to type it, really, I do) that the early bird gets the worm. With this in mind, the Careers Service is offering a whole suite of activities just for PhDs to help get your career planning off to an early and successful start.
For all PhDs:
A full suite of workshops is on offer, with more on the way. This is the current schedule, but keep an eye out for new stuff. the workshops are held in the SALC graduate school but are open to students of all faculties: Ellen WilkinsonBldg Workshops for PGRs
Central Careers Service events, fairs, and activities such as the Third Sector and Media Clubs are open to all students from every faculty.
You can book guidance appointments, interview simulations and applications advice appointments. Doing field work in the Arctic or achival research in Antananarivo? We do email advice, as well as guidance over the phone or via Skype. You can also talk to one of our Information Specialists at anytime (well, during opening hours) without an appointment. Find out more about accessing our personal career support services and which type of support might be useful to you on our Get Advice pages.
Monthly newsletters with news (obviously), events, advice and information.
And don’t forget to put Pathways 2016 in your diary as part of My Future Month for Researchers (soon to be trending on Twitter as #future4researchers)
For Humanities PhDs – a new schedule of guidance appointments in the SALC Grad School is available for February and March: Guidance appointments for Humanities PGRs
For EPS PhDs – a schedule of upcoming workshops: Workshops for EPS PGRs 2016
