Career Conversations for Graduate Students
Join us for a two day series of career conversations focused on life after graduate school outside of academia.
Each 1.5 hour block of time will focus on a specific topic. Those in attendance will view a pre-recorded webinar and then engage in a discussion with peers about that topic. You can join us for one, some, or all of the sessions. Come and go as you wish. Day 1 will mostly focus on how to highlight and explain your transferable skills from your graduate training. Day 2 will focus on learning more about what it is like to work in different industries after earning a graduate degree.
