Career Conversations: Leveraging Your PhD in STEM Outside of Academia (For PhD students and Postdocs)

A partnership with the Career Centre and Faculty of Graduate Studies

Are you 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 in science, technology, engineering and math professions (STEM), and learn more about hiring practices, employer expectations and how to leverage higher education while exploring available career opportunities.

During this panel, professionals will share examples of the range of opportunities available within their fields, the particularities of applying as a PhD and talk about how to translate the skills developed in academia to non-academic careers. The panel will be followed by an open forum where you will have the opportunity to ask the panelists your own questions.
