Doctoral College 3rd Year Cohort Day
On Monday 7th September from 15.00 – 19.00 it is the 3rd Year Doctoral College Cohort day which is on the theme of employability. The afternoon is intended to bring together all 3rd Year PhD Students to begin the process of thinking about life after the PhD. Yes, one day it will be upon you!
There will be three concurrent workshops, one for each faculty: The School of Medicine and Dentistry (SMD), the Faculty of Science and Engineering (S&E) and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Science (HSS). The taster workshops cover CVs, applications and interview skills and last 75 minutes in total.
After the workshops and coffee there will be 12 PhD alumni joining us for the early evening as part of a speed networking session. Four alumni from each faculty will rotate amongst groups of up to nine PhD Students. You will have the chance to chat to them informally about the transition into their role and the highs and lows of their career to date. We have used this format before and it is a great way to ask the questions you may feel unable to ask in a lecture format.
So far this year we are joined by the following alumni:
Arielle Le Brenne, Consultant at SCL Consulting
Lara Boyd, Business Development Manager at Cancer Research Technology
Dr Artem Bakmanidis, Senior Producer at The Goods Ideas Group
Katrina Kramer, Graduate Programme Royal Society of Chemistry
Jonathan Heusser, Data Scientist and Founder at Queueco
Eddie Andress, Junior Web Developer at Ministry of Justice
Vasiliki Tsagkroni, Post-Doctorate Research Associate at Keele University
Eithne Nightingale, Head of Equality and Diversity Strategy, V&A
Barbara Clark, Aviation Communication and Safety Consultant, You-Say-Tomato.Com
We are still looking for three more alumni. If you know anyone in a great job that people might like to know about, please contact email@example.com.
