PhD Career Connect


PhD Career Connect provides a select cohort of 60 PhD candidates, recent graduates, and postdocs with eight weeks of career preparation and professional skills training. We then bring them together with employers for an in-person, three-day event. During this time, students showcase the skills they developed during their graduate studies.

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.


This project is funded by Québec’s Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur though contributions from the Canada- Québec Agreement on Minority-Language Education.
