Accelerate to IndustryThe Duke A2i program is focused on helping Humanities and Social Science PhD students find, apply for, and secure employment outside academia. Immersion Day is an experiential learning opportunity where you can apply the lessons from the workshops and coffee chats in the Job Search Strategies series. Non-academic organizations will introduce you to their mission, teach you skills that are vital for their employees' success, and provide advice on how to land a role at their company.
