Moving out of academia: a new series of workshop

Many CERN alumni are considering pursuing a career outside of academia leading them to jobs which are just as rewarding and very challenging, however the transition from academia to other career sectors is not an easy ride. Whilst the skills and competencies developed at CERN are highly sought after by employers, translating those very skills into a language understood by other industries is not always simple. 

In our series of events, ‘Moving out of Academia to,..’ we will focus on the different career sectors CERN alumni have moved to, providing an overview of the current job market, practical tips and tricks on how to move to that area as well as a valuable networking session with professionals from the different sectors.

The first in the series of events, ‘Moving out of academia to the financial sector’, will take place on June 8, 2018 from 14.00 – 18.00. We will have a panel of guests, all CERN alumni former physicists who work in different areas of finance, who will provide valuable information tracing their journey from academia to finance as well as giving an insight on interview techniques and how to market yourself for a career in finance. The panel discussion will be followed by a networking drink.

This event is organised by the CERN Alumni Relations Office.
