Take Your Teaching Skills Anywhere: How to Talk about your Teaching Experiences to Employers Beyond Academia

Thursday, February 11, 2021
4:30 pm to 6:00 pm

How can you capitalize on the skills you’ve developed through the many hours you’ve devoted to teaching? These skills can help you position yourself for success in industry, government, nonprofit, or even academic administration. In this interactive workshop Dr. Melissa Bostrom, assistant dean for graduate student professional development, will help you uncover how your teaching experiences are an ideal way to help potential employers understand the crucial skills you’ve learned in graduate school—skills that are transferable to a variety of careers beyond faculty positions.

This workshop is open to Graduate School students, postdocs, professional students served by the Duke Career Center, and Graduate School alumni within five years of graduation.

A link to the Zoom meeting will be shared with confirmed registrants. This event is part of the Careers Beyond Academia series sponsored by The Graduate School, Duke Career Center, and the Office of Postdoctoral Services, and is co-sponsored with the Teaching Ideas series.
