This event (two half days) featured feature career-development workshops and activities, including Myers–Briggs-type personality profiling as well as sessions from individuals in academia, industry and outside the lab highlighting various career paths (including any wrong turns!) and opportunities. There was also be the chance to attend a mock interview or a CV clinics, and speak to a recruitment agency. And the winner of The Apprentice 2012 Ricky Martin shared his experiences with us prior to dinner.
Thank you to everyone who attended and gave feedback; the programme is listed below for reference.
We are in the very early stages of planning next year’s event, which we anticipate will have a more scientific focus, for example by giving delegates the opportunity to present their research. Please get in touch with us if you have suggestions or would like to be involved in the organisation.
