How to decide between an academic or nonacademic career
March 8 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until March 29, 2023
PhDs work wherever smart people are needed. In today’s creative economy, a faculty career isn’t the only option for PhDs who are seeking engaging and rewarding work. PhDs work in every part of the economy – industry, nonprofits, higher education, and government.
But what career pathway will be right for YOU? Deciding on what to do after your PhD or postdoc can feel overwhelming, even daunting.
This special workshop series is designed to walk doctoral students, PhDs and postdocs through a series of exercises to help them evaluate career options and identify next steps in building their career either as faculty or beyond the professoriate.
When: Every Wednesday in March from 12 p.m. – 12:30 p.m. ET
Format: The virtual workshop will include instruction, reflective prompts and exercises, and opportunities for participants to ask questions directly to the Beyond Prof team.
Who should attend: This webinar series is uniquely designed for doctoral students, PhDs, and postdocs from all academic disciplines who are wondering:
- Is a faculty career path right for me?
- What other career options are available to PhDs in my discipline?
- How to identify career pathways that are right for me?
- What can I do with my PhD?
