PGR Careers Panels: Exploring Options Beyond Academia

Researchers meeting with the King’s College London’s specialist careers consultants often ask, ‘What are my options with a PhD?’  What we know is that one way to find out what might work for you is to hear from people with similar backgrounds to yourself, and what they have gone on to do.

Because these case studies are so valuable, King’s Careers & Employability hosts regular panel events for researchers, to provide information and inspiration for people looking to make informed career decisions.

The first panel, on working in Management Consultancy, features four speakers all with PhDs, ranging from Zoology, Neuropharmacology, Physics and Oncology. They have all transitioned into this field, where data analysis, quick insights into solutions and expert problem-solving are all used daily; PhDs are valued for their skills in these areas as well as their subject knowledge.

This specialist Management Consultancy panel takes place on Wednesday 18th Oct, 18:00-19:00 at the Waterloo Campus.
