UW humanities and social science graduate students curious about exploring career pathways beyond that of a traditional academic (and the faculty & staff who support them) are invited to join us for an informal panel and reception to share experiences and strategies for harnessing academic skills to craft satisfying careers. Four Seattle-area professionals with graduate degrees in philosophy will talk with us about their current careers, how they got there, and how their graduate training shaped their journeys. After the panel, we will continue the conversation over a reception.
