The focus of this career exploration will be non-academic jobs, and we have speakers and guests from a variety of educational backgrounds. So, whether you are a graduate student, undergraduate, administrative assistant, researcher, post doc, faculty member, or any other part of our community, there will be something of interest for you! We hope that with these participants, we can highlight some of the career paths taken by other administrators both within MIT and externally. We also hope that we can continue to increase the representation of the administrative side of the department within our events.

As always, all members of our community (all positions and all genders) are welcome and encouraged to attend!
