Undergraduate Careers Conference
Careers conference for undergraduates thinking about taking that next step in ecology.
The annual Undergraduate Careers Conference will be held on Monday 12 February 2018, from 9:30am – 15:30pm at Charles Darwin House, central London. Like last year, it is jam-packed with presentations and panel discussions with speakers from policy, science communication, not for profit and consultancy.
The £10 ticket will include an all-access pass to all talks, as well as lunch and refreshments. It will also serve as a useful networking opportunity for you to meet like-minded delegates, BES staff, and speakers. In attendance will be representatives from BES Special Interest Groups so come along for some top careers tips, and find out more about their work and how to get involved!
