A partnership of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and the Career Centre

Are your interested in a career outside of the academy? Do you want to learn more about how to navigate the world of post-academic careers as a PhD? During this session, connect with professionals with degrees in social science and humanities working in a wide range of fields.
