By sharing their own professional journeys both during and after graduate training, these panelists will reflect on the skills and experiences that best prepared them for their current professional roles. The session will help current and recent history PhD candidates think broadly about their skills, the ways their training has prepared them for a wide range of professional opportunities, and hear reflections on how best to further develop professional tools for diverse career paths both in and outside of academia.
