The Duke University Graduate School is sponsoring the 2013 Professional Development Summer Institute: Broadening Career Perspectives for the Humanities and Social Sciences on Tuesday, June 4, 2013 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Durham Hilton, 3800 Hillsborough Road.
The free Summer Institute is an intensive-half-day professional development experience designed to broaden employment contexts and perspectives for social sciences and humanities PhDs. Participants will leave the institute with an understanding of the job search process for positions beyond faculty careers, new networking contacts, and skills to begin an effective job search. The mini-conference features nine breakout sessions and a keynote address, “What Can You Be with a Duke Ph.D.?” by Dr. ElizaBeth Fox, Associate Dean, Trinity College and Director, Academic Advising Center for Trinity College of Arts & Sciences.
