Career Future

My Future Fest – it’s not just for undergraduates

My Future Fest is back for 2020 and bigger and better than ever.

Trying to plan your future can be tough. Making decisions about what to have for dinner can be difficult, let alone deciding on what you want to do once you’ve finished your PhD!

Do you want to stay in academia or do you want to move into industry? Whether you’re thinking about how to get some kind of work experience over the next few years or about what kind of sector you might want to go into, it can be tough to figure it all out. If you need a hand making those all-important decisions, or just figuring out what options you have in the first place, My Future Fest has what you need.

This year Future Fest is ten days of dedicated careers support to help you prepare for your next steps – whatever stage you’re at. Head to My Future Fest: The Launch to see all the support available to help you to boost your CV, or get specialist careers advice. Have a look at the full list of exhibitors here.

Over the ten days the events are designed to give you practical hints and tips – whether it’s help applying for jobs, preparing for interviews, or creating a professional social media profile. Head to the Careers website to see the full list of events.

Brand new My Future Fest Careers Fair

If you are considering a move into industry following completing your PhD, this year make sure to head to The Fair on 17th February in the Academy. Replacing the Grad Fair usually held in May, the Careers Service is bringing over 60 organisations onto campus earlier for you to snap up those opportunities. The event will host employers and organisations promoting their job and career opportunities. From graduate jobs, work/travel abroad to volunteering and more, this event is for all students who are considering what to do next.

So whether you’re looking for some experience, inspiration or actually hunting for a job make sure you take advantage of the events taking place over the next couple of weeks. And as always The Careers Service team will be on hand to help you with any questions about your future.
