Ecology Seminar: Non-Academic Careers Panel

This Non-Academic Career Panel is organized by graduate students to provide an opportunity for students to learn about ecology-related career paths outside of academia: it can be challenging to find out much about these careers during graduate programs, so this annual event is one effort to improve their understanding of what other types of ecology-related careers exist, as well as what it is like to work in those jobs. The panel will consist of four panelists, in different ecology related careers to present a broad perspective of job types, and will be moderated by an OSE graduate student.

The panel is open to graduate students, undergraduates, staff, and faculty.
