To start off the GRADventure Professional Skills Conference, you’ll hear lightning talks from four different University of Waterloo staff members presenting on relevant topics from their areas of expertise. After the lightning talks, you’ll have an opportunity to join a breakout room with one of our lightning talk facilitators to learn more about the topic and ask questions.
Want to learn more about career possibilities in this startup ecosystem after grad school? Attend this panel discussion to hear from former grad students who work (or have worked) in the startup space. This session will be relevant to you as someone seeking a potential career in a startup company, or as a potential founder.
In this workshop, we will discuss the value of making connections throughout your graduate and postdoctoral studies that can positively contribute to career exploration, decision-making, and creating a community of support in your career.
