PhD Career Connect

PhD Career Connect provides a select cohort of PhD candidates, recent graduates, and postdocs with career preparation, professional skills training, and connections with employers to explore diverse career paths. 

The model

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

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

  2. A three-day intensive program where students and employers network though workshops, panel discussions, case studies and a career fair.

  3. A post-event workshop where students debrief their experiences and finalize a personalized career/action plan. 

PhD Career Connect is an adaptation of the award-winning graduate training model titled Accelerate to Industry (A2I) which originated in North Carolina State University.
