The data you provide us will help improve the postdoctoral experience at NC State by effectively allowing OPA and the Graduate School to create programming that best fits the careers our postdocs most often transition into. Furthermore, your data helps us better educate current postdocs, university administrators, and faculty on the careers our postdocs are mostly likely to pursue after their time at NC State.
The data you provide will only be presented in aggregate and not be easily identifiable. Your name will never be used in any formally presented data. We ask for your name and contact information for two main reasons:1) That we can more effectively keep track of postdoc alumni. We believe building a postdoctoral alumni network provides value to current and past postdocs.2) That we can link postdoc career interests data collected at entry to career pursued at exit. This data helps us better understand how postdoc career interests change over time.
