What Have I Really Learned?
March 9, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Can you articulate your graduate skills? Are they related to project management? Leadership? Creative thinking? In this event, we will help you identify the transferable skills you are acquiring as a graduate student that extend beyond your disciplinary specialty. Knowing how to identify and speak to the less obvious, but perhaps more universal, skills you are developing during your graduate studies will help you uncover career options that best suit your interests, goals, and capabilities. By the end of this session, you will be equipped to recognize and articulate your graduate skillset, and to translate that skillset into terms and concepts that are recognizable by a wide range of employers, both in academia and beyond.
This event is first in the four-part series “Exploring and Unpacking Post-PhD Career Possibilities: Recognizing and Articulating the Value of What You’ve Learned as a Graduate Student” from CIRTL.
