Event description

Description

Live online event with 7-day video replay | Free for members

You get advice from dissertation committees, advisors, and fellow grad students about how to write a dissertation. The trouble is, almost all of that advice presumes an academic career. It treats the dissertation as training for a faculty position.

But did you know that you can write a dissertation to help prepare you for a career as a nonprofit director, acquisitions editor, policy maker, entrepreneur, or something else?

In this webinar you'll learn:

  • How to use your dissertation structure and topic to learn concrete skills relevant to careers beyond the academy,

  • How to build the networks you need for your non-faculty career, and

  • How to navigate the sometimes fraught position of being a PhD student who is actively seeking a non-academic career.
