Careers Away From the Bench

Could you be missing out on an exciting and rewarding career outside of academic or industrial research? Increasingly, Ph.D.-level scientists are becoming aware of other career opportunities beyond bench research. This workshop considered what a career path in these so-called "nontraditional" areas might look like. We discussed the types of alternative careers available, parlaying your current skills and values into a new area, ways to research career options, and developing needed skills.

Interviewing Skills

Whether youve got a job interview scheduled or youre just starting to think about the job search process, its never too early to start thinking about how to best present yourself to employers. In this workshop, we walked through every step of the interviewing process from initial phone interviews to preparing for the big day to following up with your interviewers. Attendees learned about what employers want to see from job applicants and what job applicants should ask about during an interview. After the workshop, attendees were prepared to ensure their job interviews are great conversations with potential employers.
