Synopsis

SCI's Day of Science & Careers Scotland returns for its third year and will take place at the University of Edinburgh, having been at the University of Strathclyde and the University of Aberdeen in previous years.

These events are designed to give information about the wide range of careers covered in science-based industries. Speakers from a range of industrial, academic and independent backgrounds will present their career pathway and offer insights in to what to look out for, and what to consider when choosing your next steps. There will also be a session on interview skills and CV writing, with plenty of opportunities to network with speakers and fellow delegates.
