Take Your Teaching Skills Anywhere: Identifying Transferable Skills from your Teaching Experiences

Tuesday, February 12, 2019
12:00 pm to 1:30 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 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.

Pizza will be provided; please bring a beverage to enjoy.
