Doctoral School Alumni Careers Panel – Make it Happen 2023 – Friday 31 March

Make it Happen is an exclusive opportunity to hear how inspiring Sussex alumni got into their industries, their tips for job hunting and things to consider when you leave university, and how you could do the same.

Taking place throughout March 2023, Make it Happen features panel events with Sussex graduates now working in different sectors, sharing their tips for job hunting and thinking about what to do after university under the ‘Careers in’ banner.
