Talking Outside Your Field: Explaining Your Research During Your Industry Job Search

Wednesday, February 14, 11:00 am to 12:00 pm EST

Are you a graduate student intending to apply for industry jobs? While talking to potential employers, you’ll find yourself trying to describe your research to non-experts, struggling to avoid jargon, and feeling like your description is vague or unclear. In this University Career Center workshop, we’ll address this problem, develop specific strategies to describe your research, and get some much-needed practice.

Graduate students of all academic backgrounds are welcome to attend!
