Is it possible to use graduate school to train for an alternative academic (altac) or non-academic (postac) career? University departments usually provide professional training for tenure-track careers, but few end up in those positions. So what about the majority of grad students who are building other lives? In this free webinar, we’ll discuss how grad students can use their experiences in graduate school to develop the skills, networks, and vision needed to build diverse careers beyond the tenure track.
Dr. Alexandra Sastre (Ideas on Fire) will discuss how she developed the skills, experience, and networks she uses everyday in her postac career during her time in graduate school.
If you are currently training for an altac or postac career, you’re becoming curious about what careers are out there, or you work with students doing either we invite you to come learn about how grad students can harness their grad school training to build diverse and meaningful lives beyond the tenure track.
