This session with Dr Will Grant will help you make strategic decisions about where to focus your job search efforts.

We will cover:

  • Where PhD students usually go after graduation,
  • The size and extent of non-academic job opportunities for graduates in ‘business as usual’ times,
  • The effect of COVID-19 on the non-academic and academic job markets.
