This chapter considers our roles with students after they have effectively and successfully completed their research project, and how students can be encouraged to utilise their research and experience, both towards various forms of dissemination and the use of their research skills in employment, whether for academic or academic-related jobs, or in other roles. The chapter is in two related parts. In the first instance, we raise issues of academic identity, postgraduate skills, and employability. Not all students will want to use their research skills directly, and those who have been studying to feed into their professional roles might not want to change employment but to enhance their current roles through the status of the qualification and by incorporating these new skills. Next, the chapter focuses us on presentations and publication opportunities. Many postgraduates will, of course, want to share their work in conferences and publications long before they have finally handed in the thesis or dissertation and will need support in deciding when, where, how and what to present or publish.
