Careers webinar for Chemistry postgraduates.

In response to feedback from the postgraduate cohort at the annual Athena SWAN event in 2017 members of the Athena SWAN committee arranged a screening of the ChemCareers 2017 webinar for early career researchers.  The Royal Society of Chemistry event aimed at PhD, Post-Docs and Early Career Researchers gave an overview of things to consider when considering a career in academia. Early Careers Network members shared their career stories, and gave advice on how to make yourself more employable outlining some of the essential skills and qualities of successful academics. The event was attended by a range of postgraduate students and Post-Docs. Several students reflected after the webinar that it was useful to find out more about grant application processes, and also highlighted how useful teaching experience and supervision of final year project students could be when seeking employment in the future.
