You're Hired 2017 - event preview

You're Hired 2017 Wednesday 29 November 2017

05 Oct 2017

Venue: University of Huddersfield 3M, Huddersfield, UK
Date: Wednesday 29 November 2017

In the global chemical process sector there are many empowering and well paid jobs, in industry and academia, but the competition for these jobs is significant. To be successful and join, stay on and move up the salaried ladder is a manageable challenge in which luck is only a minor element. It involves evaluating the motivation and goals of both yourself and your prospective employer. But, with preparation, job interviews can be less daunting and job offers more probable.

On Wednesday 29 November SCI is pleased to present You’re Hired 2017, a free event aimed at successful preparation for job interviews and career development. It will describe many job roles, from the viewpoint of both recruiters and the recruited, and include networking with industry, learned societies and academia, to understand what an employer wants to see from job candidates.

The programme for the day will include:

  • Plenary: Changing face of industry in the UK
    Sharon Todd, SCI
  • Working for a charitable organisation?
    Steve Andrews, Alzheimers UK
  • What is it like working in a CRO environment?
    Rebecca Harvey, Concept Life Sciences
  • How do big pharma recruit? What aspects of the interview might be different?
    Natalie Cureton, AstraZeneca
  • Careers in the AgChem industry: why and how?
    Kenny Ling, Syngenta
  • Taking the next steps to develop your career
    David Smith & Neil Raval, CCMR Consulting
  • Breaking into a career in industry
    Dan Younger, CY Partners

This event is an excellent opportunity for PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and early career researchers to gain insightful information into career development and interview preparation, with a panel discussion at the end of the programme. There will also be opportunities for networking and the meeting will close with a wine mixer, book your place today!
