The Non-Academic Job Search for Doctoral Students (Virtual Alumni Panel)

Mon, 30 January, 2023 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Not all doctoral students are looking to pursue careers in academia. For those who are looking to build a career outside of academia, the process can seem daunting or overwhelming. Many doctoral students are not trained on how to find and apply to non-academic jobs or internships in the public, private or nonprofit sectors. And it can be challenging to show employers the valuable knowledge, skills, and abilities developed in a doctoral program. The purpose of this program is to give attendees ideas on such topics as how to identify areas and employers of interest, how to tell their story to employers, how to network, and how to land a non-academic job. The alumni panelists will share their experiences and tips on successfully navigating the non-academic job search process.
