” Are you wondering what you could do with a PhD? What skills you have that would be valued by a wide range of employers? What kind of post-PhD work life would make you happy? Then come to this interactive workshop led by PhD Career Advisors to help you get started in answering some of these questions using design thinking to manage your career. Whether you’re in the early, middle, or final stages of your PhD program, graduate students will benefit from this workshop by participating in interactive activities to help you get a strong sense of what your interests, skills, and work-values are, gain the confidence to tell your story and explore career paths, and come away with a career roadmap and resources to make the best use of your time in graduate school.
You’ll be using card sorts to prioritize your skills, interests, and values; drawing mind maps on dry-erase boards, and visualizing different versions of a ‘future you’ to help you be creative, strategic, and optimistic as you learn how to leverage your PhD for your future career.” (Via Career Services)
