Join us for this panel where you can ask questions and network with those working in research outside of academia.
Do you enjoy research? You can apply your research skills in many professional contexts outside of academia. Organizations often hire Ph.D.'s for their research, analytical, communication and writing skills.
Think tanks, education, publishing, nonproﬁts, government agencies, financial institutions, start-ups and other employers value research skills. Research job functions may include scientific research, program evaluation, fundraising research, market research or public opinion research. These positions may require skills in quantitative research, qualitative research or both.
