Gain confidence that your graduate degree will help take you places - both inside and outside of academia! This workshop will help you define and articulate transferrable skills that will help you succeed in any profession. We will then use your transferrable skills and career interests to help you craft, practice, and execute an effective networking pitch that will help you make the most out of any networking opportunity. A resume/CV Review will be held afterwards to help you tailor your newly identified transferrable skills into your professional documentation.

Workshop runs 1:00-2:30, followed by drop-in resume/CV review 2:30-4:00. Workshop portion will be live streamed via webinar.
