Date & Time

Wednesday, September 20, 2023
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm



Offered by

Graduate Pathways to Success, UBC Career Centre

Registration Closed / Past Event


Many students in research-based programs (Master's and PhD) wonder about what career paths they might pursue if they decide not to continue in academia. It can be daunting to consider what types of careers are out there, and how to connect these jobs to the skills and knowledge gained through a research-based program. This session will provide strategies for identifying possible career paths, and assessing those options, as well as leveraging a research-based program for a variety of career paths.


Danielle Barkley, PhD, is a Career Educator who works with the UBC Career Centre 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.
