Four Key Considerations for Self Employment or Small Business
Masters and Ph.D. students need career options beyond academia, but concrete information and support can be hard to come by. The online conference Beyond the Professoriate offers a unique opportunity to learn from people who have created or found satisfying jobs that use their academic training in unconventional ways.
Affordable and accessible, this two-day conference brings together experts who will share experience and valuable tips on job searches, business creation, and more.
I would love to have you join me for a session called “The Business End: Small Business Basics for Academic Professionals” on May 14.
