Panel Events: Discover Careers in...
Our Discover Careers in... panel events feature speakers working in certain industries and sectors who tell you what it is like to do their job, what you need to get into it and how they got there.
They will share their own career stories, tips and information on their sector and this is followed by an opportunity to ask questions. Listen to their stories to discover what it’s really like and bring your own questions to help refine your focus.
This series covers careers in around 40 different sectors including:
- In your faculty or department
