Just a quick one today, blog fans!
I’ve noticed there are lots of great opportunities to receive training and advice for the Big Wide World (the one where you have A Job) available at the moment. Last week I was at Life Beyond the PhD at Cumberland Lodge, which was wonderful, and on 13th September I’m off to Vitae’s Careers in Academia day in Birmingham. I also know that the Guardian are running a half-day workshop on 24th September, in London. Does anyone have any others to share – especially from further north, or the other countries of the UK? Post a comment here and help other beleaguered PhD students on their journey to employment!
p.s. An interesting fact for you, for free: the title refers to the OED’s first definition of ‘career’ as from the French carrière, meaning racecourse.
