Managing Your Career Yourself at the UCL Research Staff Conference


I’m running a session at the UCL Research Staff Conference at the British Library on the 22nd June. I’ll be talking about how to manage your career yourself (i.e. outside of an institution) and the topics I’ll be covering are:

  • Preparing an early career strategy and implementing it.
  • A project-based approach to career building, which will include discussing PhD2Published and Arts Future Book
  • Using social media for networking and research
  • Applying for post-docs and lectureships
  • Supporting yourself through these first steps

I’m excited to be doing this because having a strategy for these early days can make all the difference. Although none of this excitement (NONE OF THIS EXCITEMENT) comes close to the fever I’ll succumb to while listening to the afternoon session by Jorge Cham. I honestly don’t know how I’m going to suppress my excitement and not treat him like a rock star! I love you Jorge Cham!
