When thinking about your career, particularly on completion of a research degree, it is important to evaluate who you really are, what you stand for, where your research fits in and how you might align your professional  career with your core identity. In other words, you  need to define who you are as a brand.   

Being clear about this can help you identify and use your strengths to communicate your value to a future employer or to help increase the impact of your research in the broader community.  

This interactive workshop will help you define your unique personal brand and develop strategies - especially using LinkedIn - to communicate this to others.

Really enjoyed writing my positioning statement, learning how to overcome some of those typical interview remarks of 'overqualified', and learning how to use LinkedIn most effectively.
It was valuable to learn how to make the most of your PhD outside of academia. 
I learned that I have control over how I am perceived and how attractive I could be for industry.
