Too Late to Change Direction? Career Transitions for Research Staff & DPhils

** Guest Employer ** We are pleased to announce that Entrepreneur First will be joining us on the workshop, offering a tailored learning opportunity on lateral thinking and ideation, to help you understand the skills you wish to develop in future working roles.

Considering a career change? Wondering how to leave academia and what this might mean for you? This interactive workshop will explore: the pros/cons of staying in academic research, how we might go about moving to another sector, and what we might be risking in making this move.

In small groups, we will:

  • become familiar with an evidence-informed framework for assessing a potential career move,
  • think about how to use this in our current roles,
  • develop some practical strategies to assist decision-making.
