Many Ph.D. students feel that their degree will be their main qualification when they enter the non-academic job market, but having relevant job experience is just as important in setting yourself apart from other applicants. Not only will job experience make you better qualified to pursue different career options, the process of gaining experience can help you figure out which careers most interest you to start with. This workshop will cover how to find and pursue relevant experience in the form of part-time jobs and internships that can be done alongside your graduate work.
