Beyond academia: career planning for HDRs
PhD Up program
A one-day workshop working closely with late-stage Higher Degree by Research candidates seeking to explore career paths outside of academia.
Less than 30% of PhD graduates are still in academia within five years of graduation, whether by design or by circumstance.
In this small-group, one-day workshop, Dr Kerstin Fritsches of PostdocTraining, will work closely with late-stage Higher Degree by Research candidates seeking to explore career paths outside of academia, such as:
- with a start-up;
- in industry;
- in government;
- in a not-for-profit business.
By the end of this workshop you will:
- have a greater knowledge and understanding of what career paths are available to you outside of academia.
- be better prepared to launch your post-doctoral career.
