Many graduate students feel unsure how to describe their skills and competencies to non-academic employers. This workshop will address questions about: 

  • Highlighting accomplishments, transferable skills, and appeal to non-academic employers
  • Strategies for looking for work and approaches to access the hidden job market.
  • Informational interviews, and how they can help with the job search
  • Finding and understanding job postings

There will be opportunities for Q & A.

Facilitator

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.
