Registration Closed / Past Event


Many graduate students feel unsure how to describe their skills and competencies to non-academic employers. This workshop will address common questions about how to highlight accomplishments, transferable skills, and appeal to non-academic employers in a range of sectors. We’ll also cover strategies for looking for work and approaches to access the hidden job market.


Danielle Barkley, PhD, is a Career Educator who works with the Centre for Student Involvement and Careers to support graduate students at UBC. She completed her PhD in English literature at McGill University and has previous experience as a university instructor and writing consultant.
