last modified Jun 06, 2016 10:39 AM

The CEB lunchtime Career talk series will be returning this October. The dates for next academic year's series have now been released and CEB is looking for alumni/ae to contribute a presentation on a relevant Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology topic.

CEB graduate leaders of industry and academia are welcome to return to their alma mater and reminisce about the past, whilst also having the opportunity to share their work experience, expertise and professional experience with students.

The talks this year have been moved to Fridays with a light sandwich lunch being provided. Not that die to student commitments there will only be one talk in Easter Term.

The proposed dates for 2016-2017 CEB Lunchtime Career Talk series are:

Michaelmas Term: 14 October 2016, 18 November 2016

Lent Term: 27 January 2017, 24 February 2017

Easter Term: 12 May 2017

Since the career talk series was launched 3 years ago students have hugely benefitted from career advice and direction given, the networking opportunities facilitated and the new valuable connections made. Students also find out about internships and potential job opportunities available. This year’s career talks have covered a diverse range of topics: from managing uncertainty and risk and challenges faced by chemical engineers in industry, to careers in the pharmaceutical industry and the future of healthcare with personalised medicine.

Career Talk Series organiser, Elena Gonzalez, commented; ’Efforts are being made to ensure students get a full picture of different career options available to them. The aim of these talks is to facilitate information and provide advice on career-related matters to help our students make more informed career decisions. Graduate advice is greatly appreciated by students and CEB is extremely grateful for the continued support given by our alumni/ae in industry and academia. We’d like to thank all of them for getting involved.’

In addition, the talks have given students the chance to interact with Department graduates, corporate experts in their own fields, and ask them questions about what’s involved in a particular role or what’s required to make a successful application to a specific company.

If you are a CEB graduate wanting to get involved and contribute a presentation on a relevant career topic of choice on one of the dates above, in the first instance please contact Elena Gonzalez eg314@cam.ac.uk or +44 (0)1223762587 for more information.
