The job transition
The last session of this series will focus on the first year in your new position. Discussions will touch on how to wrap up the remaining tasks of your PhD and what to expect, what is expected, and barriers or struggles you may face in the new job. This is really an opportunity to have an open conversation with panelists about the transition from graduate school to a post-PhD position whether it is in academia, industry, or government.

Each panel will include members from academia, government, and industry positions and comprised of a discussion and Q&A session.
