Leadership Lab: Translating Doctoral Skills to Nonacademic Careers

Leadership Lab: Translating Doctoral Skills to Nonacademic Careers 

Tuesday October 7, 5:30 – 7 pm, Saieh Hall 021                                                    

Are you thinking about nonacademic careers, but aren’t sure where to look, or how to start? Many doctoral students think of themselves as simultaneously overqualified and under experienced, lacking the skills needed to be successful on the non-academic job market. The truth is that the skills acquired in grad school can be translated into leadership roles in non-academic careers. This workshop will help you identify your skills and articulate them to potential employers. Our discussion panel will consist of:

  • Kenneth Pomeranz (Chair of the Department of History, University Professor of Modern Chinese History and in the College)
  • A-J Aronstein (Associate Director of Graduate Career Development and Employer Relations, GSA)
  • Jovita Baber (Ph.D., History, ’05, Director of Research at IFF)
  • Nicole Baltazar (Ph.D., Psychology, ’12, Research Analyst at Slover Linett Audience Research)
