Your PhD experience has value across multiple career fields and industries, but you need to be able to communicate that value using different narratives for the different types of roles that you might find interesting. Career exploration covers multiple steps, including some self-assessment, online research, information gathering through networking, and then implementation of effective application and interviewing strategies. Join us for this lightning-fast workshop where an advisor for Penn Career Services will walk you through some of the steps you can be taking, and the online resources that you can be using, to explore career paths that align with your skills, interests, and values.
