You do research at uni and love your work. However, you don´t want to run into a dead-end street, being kicked out of the ivory tower in your early forties. Can you prepare for a possible exit strategy, increasing your market value while working in academic research?

With this presentation, we want to look at how you can make the most of your time at uni. What is it actually that makes the employers out there keen to get to know you?
