Workshop: PhD-Carrers outside academia

Do you want to pursue a career outside of academia? Have you asked yourself what possibilities you, as a PhD, have in the labour market outside of the university?

This one-day seminar hosted by the NJ-faculty research schools to hear from former PhD students that graduated and have gone on to pursue jobs outside the university setting. You will get a different perspective on careers choices, finding your “dream job”, self-employment possibilities, prospects and possibilities in the current labour market, etc.

The day also includes a seminar LinkedIn for PhDs: How to use it to build a non-academic career by Alison Sjöström from Verto Konsult. She will cover how you can utilise and benefit from LinkedIn as a strong career tool no matter where you are within your career development. She will also demonstrate how to transfer your skills to non-academic environments, network, find jobs or work with the development of your skills through LinkedIn.
