As grad students, many of us know all too well about our career options inside academia or in industry. But what if those options aren’t for you?


The Stronger Together team is kicking off 2021 with professional development and career planning topic - non-academic/industry careers.


We’ll discuss three major sectors you can use your graduate training in, as well as a bonus fourth module on out-of-the-box careers!


Love staying on top of the latest research, current events, or trending stories? Can’t see yourself conducting traditional research for the rest of your life? Tired of all that jargon but enjoy using analogies to convey complex concepts? If you answered yes to any of these questions, a career in communication might be for you!
