Not sure what options are available to you outside of academia?  In the current labour market there are many areas of industry that recruit graduate students for their strong research skills and areas of specialization.  Hear about some of the opportunities and learn how to transfer your skills from an academic to a business, non-profit, or government environment.  Our panelists will share with you their own success stories and strategies for moving into industry.
