Career Spotlights: your chance to meet some different employers!

Has the Christmas break given you a chance to think about what your next move might be?  Let us help you get some more career inspiration!

Come to our Career Spotlights and meet with employers who’ll spark your imagination.

What are Career Spotlights?

We invite people working in different fields, who have a PhD and are usually KCL alumni, to come and talk about their jobs.  Generally we have two or three employers coming so you will get different insights into a similar sector.  We have chosen sectors we know are interesting to a range of different PhDs.  The talks are informal, and employers are not coming specifically to recruit you!  They’re a chance for you to ask the questions you’ve often wondered about and find out what employers outside of academia are looking for.

Who should come?

Any PhD or post-doc, from any discipline, is welcome.  You might be in the first year or the last month of your contract!  There’s no sign-up, but please do come in good time.  We hold all our Spotlights at the Waterloo campus as a central venue.
