Dear OOW Members,
The OOW Careers Beyond Academia event was very rich with advice and information about jobs in think tanks, policy, research, government and industry. Thirteen great panelists shared with us their career paths, contemplations, decisions, and experiences, and answered many questions from the large audience that attended (between 110-230 people in different times of the event). Advice covered topics such as, the use of social ties, how to read job ads, hard and soft skills, quantitative and qualitative methods, work family balance, pay and much more.
This is the link for the recording of the entire event and the chat. The conversation can continue in the comments section below this post. Some of the panelists generously volunteered to answer questions after the event.
Many many thanks to the OOW event organizing committee members: OOW Chair Elect Elizabeth Popp Berman, and OOW council members: LaTonya Trotter and Tim Bartely (Head of Event Committee). Thank you to Rachel Underwood, a PhD student at Vanderbilt University, for managing the q&a discussion so seamlessly!
And huge thank you to the panelists who put so much attention to their talks and their answers: Leslie Hinkson, Steve Nuñez, Shelly Steward, Lindsay Owens, George Hobor, Caren Arbeit, Chris Bourg, Susan Biancani, Tina Park, Rachael Ferguson and Phaedra Daipha.
See you all in our next events:
