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.
