Event Details

Interested in learning about careers outside of academia?

Beyond Academia is a career education conference that exposes UC Berkeley PhD students and postdocs to career options outside of academia. Panels on a variety of career tracks give attendees the opportunity to interact with successful and creative professionals, while workshops and networking events allow for discussion in an informal setting.

Beyond Academia 2014 will take place on February 20 and 21 - it aims to repeat the success of the last conference and bring it to an even wider audience: the conference will now be a two day event, and will include speakers from a broader variety of backgrounds.

Each of the two days is focused on a different career track and is fully self-contained (but you are welcome to buy tickets for both days if you wish). See the panel schedule and list of speakers to determine which day is best for you.Tickets are $20 for each day.

The conference is targeted at both PhD students and post-docs. If you are considering a career outside of academia or are simply interested in hearing about many career options available to PhDs, we encourage you to attend.

It is our mission to provide an experience that strongly prepares PhDs with relevant options and concrete examples for a career beyond academia in the sector that fits each person the best. The attendees will benefit from direct access to knowledge, communication, and networking opportunities with non-academic professionals who have themselves gone through the transition, including several UC Berkeley alumni.

Visit our website for more information, including a tentative schedule and list of speakers.
