Thinking Beyond the Ivory Tower


Jill Marie McSweeney, IDPhD Student
Graduate Teaching Associate
Centre for Learning and Teaching

The signposts after graduate school are often directed down the road of ‘Tenured Faculty Ave.’, and you often feel others’ expectations pushing you to pursue a career inside academia. But what if that’s not for you? How do you cope with making the choice to not pursue a faculty position after graduate school? And how do you prepare yourself to become a candidate for non-academic positions? This discussion will explore how graduate school can prepare you for work in non-academic careers, and how to overcome the stigma of leaving the ‘ivory tower’ behind.


Here are a few articles I'd like people to read for my discussion group!
