How do you find the right job or internship? Whether you’re looking for full-time or part-time opportunities, on-campus or off-campus, you can count on the Career Design Center for advice and connections throughout your search.
Searching for a career beyond the academy is a daunting task. After years (maybe even a decade) of working towards a degree of specialty within your field, you have undoubtedly developed expectations and dreams for your future career. Whether you are still tethered to the idea of a tenure-track position, or you are open to exploring other career options, there are many factors to consider within your job search beyond the academy.
As a UB student, postdoctoral scholar or faculty/staff member, you have full access to Beyond the Professoriate, an online professional development training platform where graduate students and postdocs can explore career options and learn job search strategies to successfully transition into academic or non-academic career paths.
Want to spend a few hours a week working and getting experience? Possible.
