“What if academia is not right for me?” “What if I have little research experience?” “My path seems different than most.” This session will examine career paths outside of the academic, research, and think tank tracts. Panelists from the association, congressional, and not-for-profit sectors will describe their job search experiences, what their current employers look for in job candidates, and how to translate academic experience to “real world” experience.
