Career Development: Social science into industry and business training workshop

Designed specifically for social science researchers and PhD students, this one-day workshop looked to enhance knowledge of the non-academic career sector, raise awareness of personal and professional strengths and link this information together to enable students to make informed decisions about your career. It investigated employer needs, job seeking strategies and how to promote yourself beyond the realms of academic.

Underpinned by recognised career theory and using experiential learning techniques, the workshop involved presentations, interactive exercises and discussion, with resources and materials relevant to social scientists.
