Getting employed is hard. Whichever way you turn after completing a PhD, job markets are fiercely competitive and often seem impossible to penetrate.
What Next? Life After the PhD is an employability event aimed specifically at late-stage doctoral candidates and post-PhD early career researchers. The event will include a series of workshops and talks, a CV surgery, and a one-to-one mock interview. The content will be presented by academics and practitioners at a variety of career stages; you’ll hear from chaired professors, casual-contract postdocs, archivists, and theatre practitioners. By the end of the day, you’ll have received heaps of practical advice about landing a job, sharpening your CV, and polishing your interview skills. Whether you want to stay in academia or pursue an alternative path, you’ll walk away ready to do battle in your field of choice.
