2020.09.18 | Marie Bach Søgaard

Date Wed 18 Nov
Time 08:30 12:30
Location Online

Spend the morning on your career and get inspiration and insight into how to approach and find career opportunities outside of academia. 

The PhD Career Morning programme includes a plenary introduction followed by two parallel sessions on four different career topics. A virtual Recruitment Panel rounds off the morning with representatives from three different companies. The company representatives will answer questions and share information on the recruitment process in their respective companies and discuss the "do's and don'ts" when applying for a job in industry. 

Each of the four topics in the two career sessions will run as individual webinars and all registered participants will be free to log-on the webinar of their choice. In other words, you can log-on to two different webinars/topics.  

More (practical) information about PhD Career Morning and links for the individual webinars/sessions will be sent to the registered participants by email
