Careers Events 2016-17



The Department of International History and LSE Careers Service have organised another Careers panel event for students on Tuesday 29th January at 6pm, in NAB.LG.01 (New Academic Building). Online booking is required – see below.
As before, the aim of this event is to give students insight and advice on getting into careers in sectors that typically attract History graduates. Naturally, there are different speakers this time. They will be talking about their careers to date, the roles they are currently in, plus tips for career success. There will be a question and answer session after the panellists have spoken.

The panel will be:
