Let’s Talk Careers!

Perspectives on the Intersection of Academia and Professionalization

A Panel Series hosted by the Career and Advising Center and the Graduate School

Together, the NDSU Career and Advising Center, the NDSU Graduate School, and a variety of panelists will examine the perceived gap between academia and industry. Through lively discussions, we will investigate how students can navigate both worlds, how faculty can foster professional growth, and ways employers benefit from student talent. Join us as we take a deep dive into specific industries and find common language between academia and the world of work – there may be more in common than we think!

The ‘soft skills’

This panel presentation will address topics such as career prospects, the intersection of what students are learning in the class to it’s application in the world of work outside of academia and a glimpse into what is happening in the industry at a local, national and perhaps international level.  The session is open to all students, faculty, and employers.

The panelists will cover a range of concepts addressing the topic of how academia and professionalism intersect (or do not)such as how they prepared for the job market and how their academic programs prepared them as job candidates.  Furthermore, they will reflect on their current work experiences and roles and then offer suggestions based upon what they have been learning and observing.  To conclude the discussion, they will highlight important skills and competencies that transcend specific degree programs.  Finally, a Question & Answer period will occur at the end of the panel.
