The third Doctoral Cohort Day focuses on helping students make plans for life beyond the PhD, whether they decide to follow a career within or outside of academia. This will be taking place online and will comprise of three sessions:

  • A bird’s eye view of the current labour market and how it relates to researchers
  • Understanding your transferable skills as a PhD and how to broaden your job search
  • Followed by a choice of 2 sessions:
    • 6 time-saving LinkedIn secrets for researchers
    • How to ace your online interview

A further session will cover wellbeing during the final stages of the PhD. The session will look at the process of finishing the PhD whilst trying to maintain some work life balance. This session will also look at how to combat barriers to completion such as perfectionism and imposter complex.Both sessions are now open for registration on the course booking website with course codes DC300 and DC301 respectively.
