Beyond the Prof’s March webinar series, “How to Decide Between an Academic or Nonacademic Career”

In today’s creative economy, a faculty career isn’t the only option for PhDs who are seeking engaging and rewarding work. PhDs work in every part of the economy – industry, nonprofits, higher education, and government.

But what career pathway will be right for YOU?

And since you’ve invested so much time and work in academia, how do figure out which non-academic fields would be a good fit for you?

If those questions resonate with you, then Beyond the Prof’s March webinar series, “How to Decide Between an Academic or Nonacademic Career” is designed to help you!

When: Every Wednesday in March from 12 p.m. – 12:30 p.m. ET

Where: Inside Beyond the Prof’s PhD Career Training Platform.

Format: The virtual webinar will include instruction, reflective prompts and exercises, and opportunities for participants to ask questions directly to the Beyond Prof team.

Who should attend: This webinar series is designed for doctoral students, PhDs, and postdocs from all academic disciplines who are wondering:

  • What career options are available to PhDs in my discipline?
  • How do I identify career pathways that are right for me?
  • What are my most marketable skills for careers outside of academia?
  • What can I do with my PhD?

These webinars are free for Beyond Prof members to attend.

That said, you will need to register ahead of time, which you can do here:

Replays will be emailed to registered attendees and available for 30 days. Please note that replays of each Wednesday’s session will be available starting the next Friday at noon.
