PhD Plus Business in Society 8: Turning Your Complex Career Path into a Compelling Narrative

200 Wilsdorf Hall

This is the eighth session of the PhD Plus Business in Society: Adding value with your PhD skills series.

Your academic training and the capacity for learning you have developed during your education can be exceptionally beneficial for many organizations. However, your potential value for a new career path may not be apparent to hiring managers unless you can help them connect the dots between your skills and experience and the career you are pursuing. In this interactive workshop, we will explore the following questions: 

  • How do your various experiences and abilities collectively make you an ideal candidate for your next career move?  
  • What is the central thread or theme that ties together the choices you have made in your career and education?  
  • How can you tell your story in a way that makes clear sense of your career path to a recruiter or hiring manager?
