Non-academic jobs account for about 61 percent of STEM Ph.D. career outcomes, yet the lack of departmental and advisor support, along with the need to carve your own path, continues to make pursuing these careers a challenge.
From the moment you step onto Duke’s campus as a first-year graduate student, there is one word that you hear everywhere: interdisciplinarity. However, it was not until starting my internship at The Graduate School that I realized that this idea of interdisciplinarity also exists at the administrative level.
Interested in exploring career options beyond the academy? The Graduate School is sponsoring 25 registrations for current students to attend the Beyond the Professoriate online conference on May 2 and May 9. If you can commit to attending both dates online, reserve your space now. Duke-sponsored registration closes April 29 at 4:00 p.m.
