Ivory Tower or Satanic Mill: Is There Really Such a Difference Between Academia and Other Sectors?

This session will explore the difference and similarities between jobs, culture, and organisation inside and outside academia.

If you’re contemplating a job outside academia, this session will help you understand what you might be getting into, the upsides and the downsides, whether it is in public sector, small start-up, national or multinational corporation.

This session will focus on applications for positions beyond academia only.

This event is part of Careers Beyond Academia: Options and Pathways for Researchers, our careers conference for Oxford University research staff and DPhil students, 20-23 March 2023.
