Do you want to learn more about hydrology jobs outside of the traditional university setting? Graduate school equips students with many skills that are transferable and in demand outside of non-academic spaces. However, much of the career advice students receive is geared towards staying in an academic position. Join us for Navigating Non-Academic Waters: A Hydrology Jobs Panel. Panelists will be available to answer community questions about their careers, ranging from government research positions to industry and environmental consulting. The conversation will be relevant for many career stages, whether you are a student seeking job opportunity information or a professional interested in switching to a non-academic job related to water.
