Featured Event: Career Exploration for Doctoral Students in the Humanities and Social Sciences: ImaginePhD

In a tight and unpredictable academic job market, graduate students in the humanities and social sciences are increasingly looking outside academia for employment opportunities and meaningful careers that align with their values. ImaginePhD helps graduate students in these fields identify potential careers tracks and provides resources to support students in their job searches. This online workshop serves as an introduction to ImaginePhD so graduate students can make the most of this service.
