Irish Research Council confirmed for biggest Career Zoo event to date



Posted: 24 July, 2013

Career Zoo returns to the Convention Centre Dublin on 14 September, with expectations that this will be its biggest event to date. Almost 9,000 delegates attended the last Career Zoo event in February, and the next event is expected to build on this figure once again. The Irish Research Council, an event sponsor, will host its annual symposium in tandem with Career Zoo. Hundreds of researchers are expected to attend and PhD researchers and post-graduates will have the opportunity to showcase their work and meet with potential employers. “There is an expectation that after completing a PhD, graduates will continue on the academic research or teaching route. The reality is that graduates end up in a much wider range of career areas,” said Dr Eucharia Meehan, director of the Irish Research Council. “Career Zoo provides a platform for this potential, enabling employers to engage with highly skilled researchers and vice versa.” As well as employers, course providers will also be showcasing upskilling opportunities and conversion programmes. Registration is now open for the free event. A full report, courtesy of Silicon Republic, can be found by clicking here.
