An experiential job shadow program for PhD students

Applications are now open for Exploring Diverse Careers in Academia, an experiential job shadow program for PhD students. This unique program offers PhD students the opportunity to learn about alternative-academic careers on campus through shadowing staff members who hold advanced degrees.

Here's what past participants had to say about their job shadow experience:

"The Job Shadowing Program was a unique opportunity to get hands-on experience and observe the incredible work done by university staff. My host was absolutely fantastic; he went out of his way to ensure that I would have the best experience possible, and I am very grateful for his support and guidance. If you are a PhD student who is considering a career in university administration and/or student services, this program is for you!"

"This was a really good experience to get a clearer perspective on alternative careers after Ph.D. I would definitely recommend this to my colleagues."

Learn about the job shadow hosts for the Winter 2020 term. Interested PhD students are encouraged to apply before Monday, December 2.
