The feedback from our recent symposium highlighted how useful it was to meet people who worked across a range of science communication and public engagement careers, and have the chance to ask them questions about what it’s like to do those jobs, and how they ended up in those jobs in the first place.
We’ve scheduled a range of meetings and training sessions in July as a result of the feedback we had at the symposium, and on Wednesday 20 July (2pm – 5pm) we are running career development session at the Wellcome Trust.
We have 7 brilliant table hosts, who will each speak about their career history, and everyone who attends will have the chance to ask them questions. Hopefully, it will be an opportunity for an informal, useful, honest chat about what it’s like to work in this industry.
I know it is short notice, but it would be great to see some of you there, and please do promote the event to anyone who you think would be interested. It’s free to attend, but we are asking people to register here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/london-scicomm-socials-career-development-session-tickets-26520568735
The next London SciComm Social is also on 20 July – from 6pm in the basement cocktail bar of The Somers Town Coffee House (https://www.facebook.com/events/1279217805425640/). Please join us for cocktails, cake, and chat!
