Do you want to find a career path that you'll enjoy and find rewarding? Of course! But HOW do you find such a path, especially when there are so many different directions researchers can go with their careers?

There are more than FIFTY career options available to PhD's in STEM fields. If you'd like to see a list of these career options, while learning about how to select the best option for you, then don't miss this thought-provoking and interactive workshop! Here you will learn about a logical, step-by-step process for exploring your career options and deciding which option will provide the best fit for your own set of skills, values and interests.

This workshop is limited to PhD students and Postdoctoral Scholars in STEM fields. Light refreshments will be served. Participants should bring a laptop or iPad. We expect this event to be full; therefore, advanced registration is required.
