Education Building - ED 228
How can prospective and recent PhD students best position themselves for rewarding careers? Do you have to choose between preparing for an academic or non-academic career path? Drawing on research and their personal career histories in the nonprofit, government and academic sectors, the speakers will outline tools to: identify current career competencies and networks; create an action plan to increase competitiveness for both academic and non-academic careers simultaneously; and articulate competencies to potential employers. Current and recent PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate supervisors and chairs in the social sciences and humanities should plan to attend.
Speakers: Loleen Berdahl, Professor, Department Head of Political Science, Faculty of Political Science, University of Saskatchewan; Jonathan Malloy, Professor, Department of Political Science, Carleton University
