It is a fantastic opportunity to explore careers in academia, industry, nonprofits, and government. Over 400 graduate students and postdocs participated in the day-long program that included panel discussions and the chance to talk one-on-one with over 80 employers and alumni about diverse career trajectories. Thank you to all of our alumni and friends who made the day a great success!
