PhD Career Development Workshops 2019-2020

Posted: April 23, 2020

Doctoral students and postdocs at all stages of their training should participate in free in-person and online workshops to learn more about important career and professional development topics. The 2019-2020 workshops are posted in the events calendars of both The Graduate School and The University Career Center & The President’s Promise. Students and postdocs must pre-register for online workshops.

PhD Career Development Workshops will be offered as webinars via Zoom and WebEx. All Maryland students, faculty and staff have access to Zoom and WebEx using CAS authentication. Please log into the webinars 15 minutes before the start time.

PhD Career Navigator Meet Ups are a dedicated time and space for PhD students across campus to gather and support each other in their career and professional development. Drop in to get your career and job search questions answered by fellow doctoral students. No question is too small, too big, or off-limits. We meet weekly on Fridays 1:00-2:00pm via Zoom.
