Switching Gears - Alumni Talks
In this series of alumni talks we reach out to neuroscience graduates that quit academia at different stages of their careers, both long ago and recently. If you want to learn about exiting job opportunities, get insiders information about the requirements and get a personal take on what it means to leave academia, join us! After the two talks we will provide enough time for socializing and networking. The talks will focus on questions like: what is my background and did it help finding my new job? Did I know already what I wanted to do instead of science? What does my job entail? How did I prepare for my new job? What would I have done differently during my PhD knowing this would be my job?
