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.
