Welcome to the School of Physics Careers Blog. From Week One of semester, I will be adding posts relevant to undergraduates, postgraduates and graduates of the School.

Follow the blog to keep in touch with:

  • Ideas and inspiration for where physics can take you
  • Employers that are keen to recruit physicists
  • The insider view – what organisations want from applicants
  • Trends in recruitment
  • Alerts to how you can get support from the Careers Service at Edinburgh

… and a lot more. Feel free to comment, ask questions and tell me what you want to hear about!
