Career Exploration Group for Graduate Students and Postdocs

March 21, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Are you curious to learn about the variety of careers people pursue after graduate school or a postdoc? If you would like some guidance on how to explore your career options with the support of a small group, then please join us for this 5-week series! Trained counselors will guide you through the career exploration process and help to connect your skills, interests and values to a wide range of occupations, then make decisions. You will also learn how to effectively connect with alumni and other professionals to build a strong career community. These are lifelong skills you will need time and again, not just for your next job search.

This series is intended to be exploratory and most appropriate for those who plan to graduate or finish their postdoc in December 2019 or later. It is open to people from all disciplines who plan on pursuing any type of career path, inside or outside of academia.

For maximum benefit, participants should commit to meeting once a week for 5 weeks with some homework in between meetings. Meetings will be held on Thursdays: Mar 21, Mar 28, Apr 4, Apr 11, Apr 18.

This workshop is part of the 2018-19 Careers Beyond Academia series, co-sponsored by The Graduate School, Duke Career Center, and the Office of Postdoctoral Services. Questions? Contact
