Identifying and Translating Your Research Skills to Impress Your Future Employer

Are your research skills and experience valuable beyond academia? The answer is ‘yes’! It’s just a matter of packaging them in a format that employers beyond academia will understand. In this in-person session, we will provide tools for identifying your professional skills and converting your research experience into strong applications.

This session will focus on applications for positions beyond academia only.

Session objectives:

  • Provide an overview of the desired employability skills sought by employers outside of academia
  • Work through tools and exercises for identifying your existing skills and experience
  • Provide a brief overview of presenting skills within job application materials

This event is part of Careers Beyond Academia: Options and Pathways for Researchers, our careers conference for Oxford University research staff and DPhil students, 20-23 March 2023.
