Alumni career talks are held for current Geography students and allow former graduates of the department to come back and speak to the undergraduate and postgraduate students currently studying for their qualifications. The talks allow students to discover how their Geography degree and studying at Durham University can help them in their future careers and to show how studying a degree in Geography has helped current alumni to shape and direct their careers. The talks give students the opportunity to ask questions about employability and career options and discover an employer's perspective on how important their degree is and how it prepares them for life in employment.
As a former student of the Department and member of our alumni, we would be delighted if you would be interested in contributing to our employment talks to share your experiences. For example, how your Geography degree equipped you for your current role (or not!); how you got your job; what your current tasks, roles and responsibilities are and how your studies helped prepare you for these roles and the type of opportunities which currently exist within your current organisation.
If you would like to get involved in one of our future employment talks then please get in touch by email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete our online form.
