Event Summary

Dubbed "all the things that you never thought of doing after getting a Ph.D. degree in basic science," the panel discussion explored careers in science journalism, science communication and outreach, and management consulting. Speakers spoke about their own career paths and gave insight into what critical skills they acquired during graduate school that made them good candidates for these "alternative" careers, what additional training they needed, and how they found their jobs.
