Testimonials from last year's event:
"The Researcher Career Pathways Event was a fabulous reminder that at any stage in one’s career, opportunities might open up that we would maybe not even consider and it might just require a bit of bravery to accept that our research skills are valid for various and very different career paths."
"It was a really useful day with some great tips and information from the Careers Service and the opportunity to hear some very diverse real-life stories from previous students. I feel more equipped now to make decisions about my future career and am much more aware of the opportunities open to me.”
