Meet the Employer event gives students career options

To support our graduating students in the School of Physics and Astronomy, we invited a number of local companies to talk about the career options currently on offer.

Company representatives gave a 10 minute pitch each, with a Q&A session at the end. A careers networking session then followed in the Schuster Annexe.

Companies in attendance were:

  • Laser Quantum
  • Thor Labs
  • Edwards Vacuum
  • N Brown
  • Institute of Physics (IOP) (networking session only)

The event was very well received by those students who attended, with one student saying:

"Positive feedback from me, I thought the whole thing was great, especially the slido question submission system.

The ad-hoc explanation of the recommendation system used by N.Brown was fun, so perhaps it would make the presentations a bit more engaging if all the employers came with a specific example of what you might end up doing in their company, rather than a list of all the different offices they have or parts they make.

Finally, I liked having some companies based in Manchester as I personally will be looking to stay in Manchester after my studies."
