Communicating Your Value to Industry
Thursday 2/27. Union South.
Panel discussion 11:30am-2:00pm. Networking and light lunch to follow.

Thinking about a career in industry? Postdocs have experience, skills and knowledge that are valued by companies, but in order to really compete, you must present yourself effectively.

What makes you more competitive than a person with 10 years of industry experience but no PhD? You have expertise in cutting edge technologies and innovative research practices, and deep disciplinary knowledge.
Hear from former postdocs, including a CEO and an entrepreneur, who learned how to talk about their work in a way that generated serious commercial interest. The head of the new Isthmus Project, Professor Thomas "Rock" Mackie, and his staff will also be on hand to help you convert your academic thinking to a more commercially sought-after mindset.
