Graduate Skills and Competencies: How am I the Author and Narrator of my Story?
April 4 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
In this event, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows will identify their graduate skills and competencies and consider how that is developed in their graduate studies and areas to grow.
This session is part of the series “Be Your Own Driver: Imagining Post-PhD Career Versatility”. This series supports graduate students and postdoctoral researchers at all levels to articulate and build upon professional skills acquired within and outside of academic experiences. As these sessions empower participants toward the pursuit of liberating and versatile occupation possibilities, we will also resist perceived and received norms of the employment “use” of a graduate degree.
