You may have heard that a Ph.D. prepares you for anything and that a perfect job awaits you outside the academy. But how do you find suitable roles and convince others that you’re the right person to fill them? This workshop, sponsored by the CNY Humanities Corridor working group “Humanities Beyond the Academy” and facilitated by Dr. Christopher Caterine, will lead you through the practical steps of identifying your strengths, using information interviews to explore new careers, and translating your experience for non-academic employers. You will leave the session with the skills to continue exploring diverse professional paths and a checklist of actions to keep momentum going over the coming months. Five copies of Dr. Caterine’s book Leaving Academia: A Practical Guide (2020) will be given away by raffle to attendees.
