Building on the success of previous events in this series "Moving Out of Academia to..." we would like to provide CERN Alumni – or soon to be alumni – with the opportunity to learn more about how fellow alumni successfully managed a transition from Academia to the Big Tech industry.

If you are considering moving into this sector of activity, this is your opportunity to come along with your questions and obtain first-hand information from our panellists.

The first part of the event is focused on the nature of the work carried out by our panellists and on other skills, they acquired at CERN which have helped them (or not) in the transition. They also explain which additional skills they had to develop after CERN for a successful career move.

The second part of the event will provide you with very practical advice on how to prepare for such a transition, how to get started, what errors to avoid, where to look for help and how to promote your assets.

When: on 21 October 2022, from 2 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. CET
Where: Please register here for the event to receive the zoom link.
