The model

PhD Career Connect selects a multidisciplinary cohort of sixty PhD candidates, recent graduates and postdocs to complete the program’s three stages:

  1. Ten weeks of self-directed, and instructor-led workshops to enhance their professional and job readiness skills.

  2. A two-day event where students network with mentors and employers to present their skills and learn about diverse career options.

  3. A workshop where students create a career action plan. 

PhD Career Connect was modelled after the award-winning graduate training program titled Accelerate to Industry (A2I) which originated from North Carolina State University.
