Are you aware of the skills you are developing throughout your research degree and how they relate to employability in both academic and non-academic environments?

This one-hour webinar will help you to recognise and record your skills throughout your degree, understand the value they offer in the workplace and how you can articulate that value to potential academic and non-academic employers. With this new understanding, you will be more confident about your career.

The webinar is an online version of the workshop Career Shaping:  Understanding your Skills and Identifying Opportunities. 


You may also be interested in participating in the Career Shaping: Identifying Opportunities for Skills Building webinar on Thursday 5th July.  

This workshop will be presented by Dr Shari Walsh, Developer and Facilitator of Resilient Researcher, Psychologist and Career Development Practitioner, Growth Psychology, Brisbane.

About Career planning

Many research students intend to follow an academic career path on completion of their degree. But what does an academic career really look like? And, if you knew what to expect, would you still wish to pursue that path?

Researchers work in all facets of government, industry, NGOs and universities. Understanding the diverse range of career options available will allow you to reflect on the 'fit' between academia and your own strengths and interests. 

It is important to start considering your options and plan for your post-HDR career during your studies so you are well prepared to transition to the workplace as a PhD or MPhil qualified individual. The Graduate School supports you in this process through the Career Development Framework (CDF) as well as with a dedicated HDR Careers Advisor who specialises in advising HDR candidates. The Careers Advisor is available for appointments to discuss career options, CV development, interview techniques and other career-related topics. These appointments are designed to complement the existing suite of career-related workshops which are already offered as part of the CDF.
