Many of the skills you will need for future employment are intrinsically developed through your research degree, including critical and analytical thinking, project management, and a multitude of technical skills. Join us as we hear from a panel of PhD qualified professionals sharing stories of their own career progression and their reflections on the skills and experiences that employers are looking for. This session will be of particular interest to HDR candidates from the broad Humanities and Social Sciences fields.


About HDR Week

We are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the UQ Graduate School! Over the years, the contribution our HDRs have made to UQ and beyond have been substantial..

HDR Candidates play an important role within The University of Queensland. HDR Week is a chance to celebrate our HDR candidates and thank them for their contribution. The week includes networking events, and social activities to recognise the hardwork they put into their HDR journey and the important contribution they make to our university community. In 2022, we will celebrate HDR Week from 21-25 November.

We need your help in planning events for 2022! What events are you excited to run that would be perfect for HDR candidates? What are you planning to celebrate? Let us know, and we will highlight it in our promotions!
