New Year's Goals: Successful career planning for researchers #vitaehangout

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
