WeAreSTS logo for the podcast series

Every university student has “careers” on the mind, even if they’re not sure what they should be thinking about. In this interview, Professor Joe Cain talks with the STS Careers Tutor, Dr Jean-Baptiste Gouyon about this subject. He talks about the new STS student-led Careers Task Force. We also talk about many ideas under the title, “careers thinking,” including the philosophy of flexible futures. As a careers tutor, Dr Gouyon is a specialist in thinking about how students might look ahead to find specific career paths. If they’re not sure how to start, Jean-Baptiste is an expert in helping people get started.
