Over the past 9 years, Beyond Prof’s annual online career conference has helped nearly 12,000 doctoral students and postdocs build careers beyond the professoriate. This year’s conference continues our mission to empower PhDs to explore their career options and build meaningful careers. 

After years of being successful in academia, it can be daunting and overwhelming to launch a professional job search. Every one of our speakers has been where you are now, but they have successfully made the leap to industry and are thriving. They want to help you do the same.

Join us from May 1st through May 5th for workshops that will help you build a foundation for your job search strategy. On May 6th, attend career panels that will help you learn about career options and what it takes to pursue a nonacademic career with a Humanities, Social Science, or STEM Ph.D.

This conference is sponsored by the Global Higher Education Division at ETS and Pfizer.

Price: FREE for anyone attending live. Replay options are available for $49 US. 

When: May 1st - 5th, every day from 12 - 1 p.m. ET. Attend career panels on May 6th starting at 11 a.m. ET.

Where: Conference is virtual via Zoom Webinar
