Graduate Student Career Options Conference

Saturday, April 6, 2019
9:00 am - 4:00 pm

If you’re a Masters or Doctoral student thinking about the job search, come meet and connect with Brown alumni about possible career paths outside of academia! On April 6th, 2019, CareerLAB will be hosting the fourth annual Graduate Student Career Options Conference (GradCON 2019) where alums from all divisions -- the humanities, social sciences, physical sciences, and life sciences -- will participate on panels about their own career paths and life after Brown.

We are offering a full day of alumni career panels (from fields such as Media & Communications, Government/Policy, Science Research, Education, Non-profits, and Business) as well as a lunch and afternoon reception where you can meet with alumni in a more personal and intimate setting. There will also be plenty of opportunities to network at the student/alumni networking lunch (space is limited), and a closing reception.
