Pathways: Career Options for PhD Researchers and Research Staff 10, 13 & 15 June
10, 13 & 15 June 2011, Renold Building
Now in its fifth year this University wide event is designed to help our PhDs and
Research Staff (post-docs) make some potentially difficult life and career
choices. All four Faculties and the Careers Service are collaborating to
attract panellists who have completed their PhDs within the last 10 years
and are now working in a wide range of careers to talk to our current PhDs
and research staff, over 500 of whom attended last year.
How can you help?
1. Send us contact details of your former PhDs and Post-docs who you
think we could contact and ask to return to Manchester [travel expenses
paid] to participate in one of the panel sessions and share their career
stories. It makes a real difference to our early career researchers to
hear from people who have been in their position. Panel sessions run in
40 minute slots, throughout Day 1 (Friday, 10 June 2011) and panellists
can come for all or part of the day.
2. Encourage the PhD researchers and research staff in your research
group to attend the event. In addition to the Day 1 discussion panels,
Day 2 (Monday, 13 June) will involve interactive workshops offering
practice in interviews and assessment centres. Day 3 (Wednesday, 15 June)
will be part of a larger Graduate Recruitment Fair [at GMex] with a
specific “PhD Zone” of PhD recruiters. There will also be specialist CV
advice on the day.
3. Volunteer yourself for Day 1 or Day 2 (Monday, 13 June) to sit on
a mock academic interview panels (1 – 1.5 hrs) to give opportunities for
participants to practice their interview skills.
