When & Where
Tue, February 11, 2014 - 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM
D-Lab: Convening Room (356 Barrows Hall)

While a doctoral degree from Cal is most helpful in securing a tenure-track position, the truth is that not everyone wants to go that route, and there aren’t enough positions for everyone who completes a PhD.  Non-academic careers offer a great deal of flexibility in terms of topic area, preferred geographic location, and compatibility with spousal careers.  However, the way one finds a non-academic position, and the kinds of positions available are not obvious to faculty advisors.  If you want to know more about non-academic career paths, join Leora Lawton for a discussion of the kinds of employment available for those with advanced degrees (MA and PhD), how to find them, and how to be successful.
