After briefly telling her own post-PhD story, Dr. Chambers will unmask the real PhD career pipeline and reveal contrasting notions of "results" inside and outside the academy. Then she will lead attendees in a well-organized sequence of hands-on activities in which they will identify their own most valuable accomplishments from this new perspective and learn how to describe them in language that will resonate with non-academic employers. Lunch provided. Seating is limited. Please only register if you are able to attend the full session. Open to graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.

Facilitator: Paula Chambers, Ph.D. Founder and CEO of VersatilePhD
