Career Planning Series: Explore Careers and Research Employers

Thursday, February 22, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

As a graduate student or postdoctoral scholar, you will need to advocate for yourself on the job market. Once you have developed a career plan, you should begin building your network, learning about, and communicating with companies or organizations where you wish to work. How do you develop an accurate profile of a company/organization’s purpose, culture, and needs? What kinds of communication are appropriate at this stage of your job search? In this workshop, you will learn how to research potential employers of various types, build your network in a new professional area, and communicate with individuals involved in every stage of the hiring process.

Light refreshments will be served. Registration is not required for this event. Please arrive a few minutes early to ensure a good seat.
