Research to industry - assisting Masters, PhD and early career researchers to make the move

Royal Society of Victoria, 8 La Trobe Street, Melbourne

 

veski is providing an unique opportunity to build connections between students and industry sectors to foster conversations, introductions and help motivated candidates make the transition from academia to industry.

veski’s key focus is to ensure existing researchers and innovators are business ready by:

  • providing training and awareness of enterprise skills;
  • connecting them to industry; and
  • ensuring they remain relevant and prepared for a change in career path.

This is the final veski kickstart for 2017 and provides up to 100 STEM Masters, PhD and early-career researchers, from across Victorian Universities, the opportunity to engage with industry leaders who in turn provide insight into alternative career paths; how to manage expectations; what skills industry are looking for, and how to navigate differing cultural environments.

Students will be advised about jobs of the future, provided with a fact sheet on the Dos and Donts on approaching potential employers and guided on how best to articulate and showcase their enterprise skills. The presentations will be followed by two separate workshops depending on where the student is, in their transition from academia to industry.

These workshops will be followed by breakout sessions where students will have the opportunity to speak with industry leaders across sectors in managed networking groups.

This event is being delivered under the veski skills, training & education component of our proactive outreach activities to ensure Australia continues to foster innovative thinking, build capacity in all aspects of our workforce including enterprise skills to capitalise on its investment in educating great minds by providing them with opportunities to contribute and sustain dynamic careers.
