Designed to help you make the most of your EDGE experience, this edition of the EDGE Bulletin shares upcoming development opportunities available to book now in EDGEx, and connects PhD candidates to the Career Conversation to embed career goals in your development plans. You’ll also find a recent graduate's story in the EDGE Spotlight – in this edition Gunay Aghayeva shares her skills development experience, and how it’s helped shape her post-PhD career.
