“Degree, PhD: what’s next?” – webinar organised by Chiara and Francesca

Our postdoc Chiara Biagini and our former group member Francesca Della Penna, with the help of our PhD candidate Valeria Nori chairing the event, organised a seminar for students and PhD candidates on the transition between academia and job market. “Laurea, PhD: e poi?” (“Degree, PhD: what’s next?”) was held on 19 and 22 Feb 2021 and it was born from Chiara and Francesca’s experience in corporate recruiting, which they decided to share in order to help students cope with this delicate moment without panic.
Day one was dedicated to how to prepare at best for a job interview; day two was dedicated to the different role of chemists outside academia. On this second day, we could count on the contributions of three amazing guests: Dr Vittorio Maglia from Federchimica, Miriana Montefusco from Valagro‘s Talent Development Office, and Fernando Gomollon Bel, freelance science communicator and press coordinator for Graphene Flagship.
We had around 70 partecipants on both days and the live chat was burning with questions! It was such a success, congratulations to Chiara, Francesca and Valeria and thanks to our amazing guests!
