Careers fairs provide you with the chance to meet employers face-to-face, to learn about current vacancies and opportunities available, and to market yourself to prospective employers. Most of our fairs have several talks you can attend as well, about the sector and opportunities within it – and often the opportunity to get advice on your CV from professionals. See each fair booklet for further details.

If you’re attending a fair, we recommend you read our information on how to prepare for a careers fair for useful tips.

What other jobs could you do? Conference for Researchers on 17 March

Blogged by Rachel Bray on January 25, 2018.

Are you a DPhil or postdoc unsure about whether you want to stay in academia but feeling a bit clueless about what else you could do? Do you want to keep using your research skills in interesting ways, while expanding your horizons beyond strictly academic research?

Booking is now open for the annual Careers Conference for Researchers – your chance to learn more about the many realms in which your academic skills and credentials will be valued.

  • When: Saturday 17 March, 10:00-16:00
  • Where: Examination Schools
  • Book: via CareerConnect

The conference will feature:

  • Themed panels showcasing ‘a day in the life’ of doctoral graduates now working in research-intensive sectors,
  • Insights from experienced recruiters on what they look for when hiring researchers,
  • Hands-on skills sessions for managing your current life, expanding your skills in new directions, and honing your core employability skills,
  • A long lunch break for you to network with employers and/or try out a range of careers resources on everything from portfolio careers to overcoming a sense of academic failure.

The panel sessions will help you understand how to make an effective professional transition from academia into sectors including commercial science; entrepreneurship; finance; government and policy; higher-education funding and support; publishing; specialist consulting; and tech/AI.

The skills sessions will include negotiation skills and professional development; having a family as well as a career; creativity in a commercial setting; and how to make humanities and social-sciences training marketable.
