Securing a Job

But don't forget other options...


Think about...

  • A non-academic job within Higher Education- for example, in administration, policy, research management, training, student support or project management. 
  • A job outside of research but related to the subject area of your research, for example as a medical writer, teacher or sales representative for scientists, a journalist or a role in government for social scientists.
  • A job outside of your subject area but using some of the technical or transferable skills you have used as part of your research, for example, using your project management skills in management consultancy, using numerical skills in the financial sector, using writing and editing skills in journalism or publishing.  Possibilities are endless.
