Launch Your Career Plan is a new initiative by the Vice Dean, Graduate Studies to support graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to launch their career planning early in their studies. This event will guide you to critically reflect on career opportunities for research-based students and fellows (including further graduate studies, academia, and industry), and equip you with strategies and tools to explore your unique career aspirations. You will leave this event with tailored resources to dive deeper into the specific career pathways that interest you.
At this event, you will:
- Learn about parallel planning for further graduate studies, academia, and industry careers
- Use labour market data and networking tools to discover diverse academic and industry opportunities
- Listen to a panel of alumni who have completed further graduate studies, are working in industry, or obtained a professorship
- Create a plan to explore your specific career aspirations
This event is open to all MASc students, PhD students, and postdoctoral fellows. We welcome participants who have a clear idea of their career trajectory as well as those who are deciding between continuing in academia or finding an industry position. It is highly recommended that all research-based graduate students and postdoctoral fellows attend this event near the beginning of their studies.
