Beyond Academia 2018

 

Find out first-hand what it is like to found a (staggeringly successful) company, generate impact through affecting policy change for the government, or use your academic knowledge to engage with industry professionals.

In this panel session, hosted at the University of Bath, each speaker talked about their personal experiences, including their own transition away from academia into alternative careers. Discussions revolved around some of the opportunities that exist for individuals with a PhD, how to create your own opportunities, how to sell your skills to employers and more. At the end of the event, researchers had the chance to meet the speakers in person, asking any questions they had in a less formal setting.
