What can you do? Broadening your horizons cont'd

Take the time to explore how you can broaden your horizons. Consider how you could:

  1. Use your research skills in another university setting
  2. Transfer your research skills in another setting
  3. Use your subject knowledge and understanding outside of the research environment
  4. Use your transferrable skills (remember to consult the skills audit) beyond academia

For each opportunity:

  • Do you have the required skills? - if not how can you develop these skills?
  • Does it match your values?
  • Will it motivate you?
