MIT PhD Career Planning Group: Apply by Jun. 26

June 18, 2015


Do you ever find yourself wondering:

  • “What do I really want out of my life, my PhD and future jobs?”
  • “What do I want out of a career?”
  • “How do I talk about my research to a non-technical audience?”
  • “How do I even go about networking and making external connections?

If you have answered YES to any of the above questions, you might be a good candidate for the Career Planning For PhDs program. In these four 2-hour group sessions during the month of July, we will cover essential career planning competencies such as self-assessment, communication, business etiquette and networking. Participants may gain awareness of what skills, interests and values you want to use in your work and expand your knowledge of relevant resources and tools that will hopefully help you when you are seeking full-time employment upon graduation.

Application: We are limited to 15 slots due to the nature of the group. Please complete the application!

Timeline: Applications are due by 5:00 EST on Friday, June 26. Decisions will be made and applicants will be notified by Wednesday, July 1st.

We also plan to conduct additional PhD Career Planning Groups in the future.
