Medical research is a very intense, focused activity, and career planning can take a back seat. Yet the reality is that those who engage early tend to make happier and smoother moves into the next role. Booking an appointment with a Careers Adviser is a great way to begin exploring your ideas for after the DPhil or postdoc, get some practical input on applications, or simply to take a moment to pause and think ‘where am I, and where might I want to go next….?’
We will help you identify some achievable next steps and to understand how the Careers Service can support you as you proceed. These include a huge variety of events to help you meet people working in sectors where research skills are valued, hands-on programmes to develop your core employability skills and workshops to help you hone your written application skills and interview techniques.
Appointments are offered to DPhil students and contract research staff (grade 6 and above), including postdocs, at The Careers Service, 56 Banbury Road every week and can be booked using your CareerConnect account (accessed via www.careers.ox.ac.uk). We are also offering appointments at a Headington venue, as per the below.
