New Year's Goals: Successful career planning for researchers #vitaehangout
This event has now taken place. You can watch the recorded video here.
Here's the most useful New Year's resolution you can make this January. Make 2017 about your professional and career development.
If you don't know where to start, join us on the 18 January betwen 2-3pm (UK Time) to explore career options for researchers and and make sure your professional development planning becomes a successful life-changing habit rather than something you only consider once every few years.
Panellists will take audience questions, so this is your opportunity to get expert advice on career options, career planning and professional development for researchers.
We will attempt to answer the following questions:
- How do you realise what strengths and talents you have?
- What kinds of career paths do researchers follow?
- How do you make a career development plan?
- What are employers looking for?
The Google Hangout will be moderated by Dr Kate Mahoney and include the following panellists:
- Dr Alex Conner FRSB Senior lecturer- University of Birmingham Medical School. SFHEA. Trainer of Transferable Skills and Coach
- Fiona Colligan, Head of Piirus - Warwick Employment Group
- Dr Stephanie Harper, Senior ecologist / environmental consultant - Ove Arup and Partners Ltd

Our YouTube Q&A is part of our current 'Focus on' theme. With 'Focus on planning ahead to manage your career', This ‘Focus on’ features practical strategies to deal with stresses of research and offers useful advice on how to have a life outside of research. It proposes a range of suggestions that have been found useful in balancing the different demands in researchers' lives.
