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.
