Outside of academia, the currency of your PhD is different.
In collaboration with Deakin Research, DeakinTALENT hosts a series of interactive, motivational panel events for you as PhD students and graduates to explore career opportunities outside of academia.
Each event showcases a panel of PhD graduates who have built successful careers. The panellists share their career journeys and discuss how they have leveraged their PhDs to build careers in industry and research-based organisations.
We highlight how you can develop your skills and seize opportunities to enhance your employability. Your PhD provides you not only with in-depth knowledge of your field and extensive research skills but also a range of transferrable skills. It’s critical for you to draw upon these skills when pursuing a non-academic career.
If you want to leverage your PhD to build a career outside of academia, then we encourage you to attend these events!
“DeakinTALENT was a hidden goldmine! I first attended a panel event on life after a PhD and received some valuable insight into exactly that. Additionally, there has been so much career support from DeakinTALENT from resumes and cover letters to developing my personal brand, including online professional profiles.”
