PhD career webinar
I had a blast last week providing a career webinar for my alma mater, the University of Virginia.  The UVA Alumni Association invited me to present on “Career Options for Academics and Other Intellectuals” in a 60-minute webinar.

I’m excited to share that webinar with you here. Thank you for making 2015 a fantastic year! The team here at Beyond the Tenure Track will be taking a short break until after the holidays. We’ll be back with great content in 2016, so recharge, reflect on your milestone achievements this year, and get ready to work towards your goals with us in the new year.

Have a safe and happy holiday.


Session title: Career Options for Academics and Other Intellectuals

[webinar link, ]

Session description: 

Graduate students, postdocs, and PhDs are primarily trained to enter careers in academic teaching and research. But where else do academics and other job seekers who thrive on intellectually stimulating work get hired? Fatimah Williams, PhD provides insights into popular industries and roles for academics as well as common career-transition mistakes to avoid that most intellectual, mission-driven job seekers make. This webinar is for prospective graduate students who want to understand their career options; academics at any career stage who are interested in non-faculty careers; faculty who want to know their options after tenure denial; and family members and friends who want to better support the academic or prospective graduate student in their life.

Originally aired: December 4, 2015
