The Graduate School Alumni Association partnered with the Office of Career Services again this spring to present the second annual Leveraging Your PhD in the Workplace on April 20, 2012. Designed to highlight career options and job-seeking strategies beyond academia, the event drew a large crowd to Dudley House as current students hoped to crib pointers from 2012 GSAS graduates who successfully found jobs this year. The crowd also heard from GSAS alumni, who returned to talk about the twists and turns in their journeys from their PhDs into professional jobs outside academe.
