My Career Story: Non-Linear Career Paths

For many people, there is the misconception that their academic discipline must match exactly with the career path they choose or you may have been faced with the question of what you are going to do with your degree by well-intentioned friends and family. While the thought of "choosing the right career" can be exciting, it can also be overwhelming when you don’t quite see the link to your academics.

Listen to our panel of alumni and professionals share their how they navigated their career peaks and valleys, explored their interests and developed skills, and how their networks helped them along the way in non-linear career journeys.
