Today we are launching our new careers booklets for undergraduates. ‘Next steps: options after a bioscience degree’ contains lots of useful advice on everything from further study options to finding and applying for jobs. It has been written in collaboration with our sister societies: Society of Biology, British Ecological Society, Society for Experimental Biology, The Physiological Society, Society for Endocrinology and the British Pharmacological Society.
The booklet will be launched at the AGCAS (Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services) biennial conference as part of a 90 minute workshop entitled ‘Careers for biologists’, delivered by Gemma Garrett (Head of Education, Biochemical Society) and Sarah Blackford (Head of Education and Public Affairs, Society for Experimental Biology). The workshop will explore what bioscience graduates doo, how to increase their employability and the support provided by Learned Societies and other resources.
AGCAS is the professional association for higher education (HE) careers practitioners and those involved in the provision of careers and employability education, information, advice and guidance to current or prospective HE students and graduates.
