Careers Event: Finding Your Future
Throughout February 2021, online

The SUPA careers events offer final year PhD students and Early Career Resesarchers the opportunity to explore a variety of professions and discuss these with representatives from industry and academia. 

The 2021 event "Finding Your Future" will open with CV clinics for SUPA students and researchers, taking place online in the first two weeks of February with support from careers advisers and experts. The final two weeks of February will see daily discussions with people about their careers post-PhD, opened up to the wider Scottish research and innovation community. The final day (Feb 26) will be an online careers fair event, with all guests and participants able to mingle in an online event space.
