Webinar on career development scheduled for October

Second career webinar will focus on networking and career development.

Three Gates alumni are organising a webinar on career development, continuing research and networking.

The webinar, the second in a series of talks for scholars on career development, is expected to take place on 8th October.

The organisers are Pradipta Biswas, Rose Spear and Maja Milicevic.They say: “The previous webinar provided a picture of socially conscious jobs. This time we are taking it further with discussions on career development, networking and continuing research.”

There will be guest speakers on issues ranging from how to choose your next position, managing your supervisor, visa issues to more pragmatic aspects, such as writing funding proposals and networking.

Scholars taking part are invited to speak about their research, existing problems and how they intend to overcome them.

Please get in touch with Pradipta (pb400@cam.ac.uk) if you would like to get more detail about participating or present your research/views in this webinar or sign up at
