Urban Work: Career paths out of academia and into the city


Have you always been fascinated by cities and city life? Are you interested in finding a job in the world of urban work and developing a career in shaping the city? Do you have a background in urban studies or another discipline that is relevant to understanding the urban? And do you want to become an urban professional and expert, be it in public administration, consultancy, social work, business, an international organization, the cultural sector or advocacy? Then this webinar series will be of interest to you by exploring the diversity of career paths out of academia and into the city.


Cultivating connections and exploring intellectually stimulating career options outside the university is not always easy. Yet, listening and talking to people who have pursued a career away from research and education is a crucial catalyst for figuring out where your career path might take you next. The Urban Work webinar series will give the floor to urban experts and workers from across the world and from different fields in order to identify, appreciate and support access to meaningful urban work opportunities beyond academia for urban studies graduates. Each webinar will revolve around the careers of one or more speakers, allowing for an informal discussion on their own career choices and paths taken as well as a critical but concrete reflection on urban work opportunities and labour markets in different cities.
