Graduate Student Career Options Conference

Saturday, November 11, 2017
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 November 11th, 2017, CareerLAB will be hosting the third annual Graduate Student Career Options Conference (GradCON 2017) 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 Communications, Government/Policy, Science Research, Education, Non-profits, Data Science, and Business) as well as small group sessions 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.
