Career Workshop – Do Physics, Be Anything: How to Sell Your Skills on the Non-Academic Job Market

Wednesday, November 2, 2016
12:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
McEnery Convention Center, Room 211 AB

The majority of physics graduates find work in non-academic settings, yet very few students have access to mentors with industry experience and therefore to information on how to best prepare themselves for careers outside of the academic world. In this interactive workshop, Crystal Bailey (Careers Program Manager at APS) will provide tips and strategies for discovering — and successfully pursuing — careers that align with your skills, interests, abilities, and values.

Workshop is free and open to all attendees. Light refreshments will be served.
