TRANSFERRABLE SKILLS WORKSHOP - MONDAY 30TH OCTOBER - 11.30AM-1.00PM - ALUMNI GALLERY, YOUNG LIBRARY

Please join us for a workshop led by Ashley Sorrell from CELT. As a graduate teaching assistant, you have mastered a number of dynamic skills that have made you an effective classroom instructor. But what you may not realize is that the same skills you have cultivated as a teaching assistant are transferrable to careers outside of academia. In this interactive workshop, we will identify specific transferable skills you have developed as a teaching assistant and discuss how you can best market these skills for post-academic careers.

Lunch will be provided by The Graduate School’s Office of Professional Development. Please RSVP with Catherine Brereton (cabr223@uky.edu).

 

Every year the National Association of Colleges and Employers compiles a list of the attributes employers most look for when hiring. In 2016 the top 10 skills are leadership, ability to work in a team, written communication, problem-solving, verbal communication, work ethic, initiative, quantitative analysis, flexibility & adaptability, and technical knowledge. These are all transferable skills that many PhD students develop over the course of their graduate study.
