Here is what last year’s participants said about the conference:
"The most useful thing for me was learning about the many different options available career-wise. This will help me prepare for the future and start thinking in advance of the skill sets I want and need to work on in order to open up options outside of academia."
"It was helpful seeing the diversity of opportunities available for PhDs and talking to fellow PhDs who are thinking about careers."
"Roundtable networking was actually really fun!"
"I enjoyed the keynote and appreciated the general idea of all of it."
