There's Light at the End of the Tunnel

A Panel of recent MIT alumni across academia, industry, consulting, and entrepreneurial careers speak about how they planned and accomplished graduation (convincing advisor, committee); how their career paths post-graduation have changed since MIT (work style, pace, perks, drawbacks); and what they know now that they wish they had known while at MIT, especially professional development and career-building resources and strategies. A representative from the Office of the Dean for Graduate Education (ODGE) also presented findings from the fall 2012 survey of graduate alumni.

Assistant Dean Jason McKnight, ODGE, presents survey findings.

Panelists:

  • Alex Fox
  • Taras Gorishnyy
  • Jessie Wong
  • Shan Wu

Organized by the Graduate Student Council Academic, Research and Careers Committee (GSC ARC).  Recorded by the ODGE.
