October 2, 2018 |Putting Advanced Degrees to Work in the 21st Century: Academic Associations on Recent Trends in Career Pathways for Humanities and STEM Fields
Join us as two leaders in career development for advanced degree candidates (master’s and Ph.D. students) visit Fordham University: Emily Swafford, Ph.D., director of academic and professional affairs for the American Historical Association, and Corrie Kuniyoshi, Ph.D., senior program manager for the American Chemical Society. This engaging discussion will focus on new developments in professional outcomes for those trained in both humanities and STEM disciplines.
Swafford and Kuniyoshi will draw from their experiences in graduate and postdoc career research and development at major academic associations to discuss …
• the recent trends in career outcomes for individuals with master’s and Ph.D. degrees in humanities and STEM fields, including comparisons and contrasts of job markets across the disciplines in academia and industry
• the crossover between skills that graduate students receive in academic training and employers’ needs in both academic and nonacademic environments
• the results of pilot programs at universities that have implemented training in career diversity for graduate students
