PLAN Workshop - Alternative Academic Career Panel
Description. Graduate students come to alternative career paths from all directions – from purposeful interest to concern for job marketability. Often, they are uncertain about what possibilities exist, how to explore new fields, how to gain experience and skills in these areas, and what steps to take to begin their job search in fields outside of the academy. In this session, we’ll take a look at alternative career paths for graduate students from a career development approach: understanding how your interests and abilities can help you identify new career paths. You’ll learn more about yourself and your possibilities and leave with a plan to investigate a new career path.
Learning outcomes. Reflect on their interests and skills related to alternative academic positions; Consider how they might explore potential altac career paths; Identify resources for more information about alternative academic positions.
