Pathways to Success is the Graduate School’s framework for helping graduate and professional students and postdoctoral scholars be successful in their research and scholarship, and establish necessary skills for their future careers.

The Summer P2S Symposium is a professional development opportunity for doctoral, professional degree, and research master’s students and postdoctoral scholars that will provide participants with information and tools useful for their time at Cornell and beyond. Participants may register for an individual session or all sessions offered within this three-part symposium.

Workshop: Thinking Flexibly about Experiential Opportunities and Skill Building

Session Summary: Doctoral career outcomes survey data reveal Cornell graduates contribute valuably in all employment sectors. Professional skills are sought by employers in addition to discipline-specific knowledge and expertise. But how to highlight these skills you already have and how to carve out time to build the ones you need? In this session you will learn how flexible experiential opportunities contribute to skills that can position you as a top candidate. We’ll explore ways you can efficiently acquire and practice these skills that will complement your research and empower you for your future.
