Join Career Development and Employability Services (CDES) and the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) for a one-day career education event for doctoral candidates.
Doctoral Futures is all about sharing the wide range of career options and paths available to you as doctoral candidates, so you can make informed decisions about your career direction and next steps.
The event will feature a keynote speech, a presentation, two panel sessions, and a series of short speeches. We have invited people who have undertaken doctoral studies and are now in a variety of different careers to share their stories with you. We will address careers in academia and outside of it, as well as entrepreneurial careers that doctoral candidates have gone into.
Date: Tuesday 28 November 2023
Location: General Library (LibB15/109-B15)
Light refreshments will be provided.
You are welcome to attend any part of the day that you find most interesting. However, we request that you please register your attendance on MyCDES for catering purposes, even if you only attend one session.
