Making Career Decisions in an Era of Uncertainty

by | Feb 18, 2019

Making career decisions can be incredibly challenging work. Should you take the visiting assistant professor (VAP) position or hold back another year before filing your dissertation? Is another contingent position worth a move across the country or should you stay put and try to make something happen where you are? Is it time to leave the academy for another industry or should you give the academic job market one more chance (and many more dollars)?

As academics, we are often faced with making a tough and life-altering career decisions with very limited information. How do you make those decisions? And then how do you live with them afterwards?

In this webinar, Dr. Kate Drabinski discusses strategies for making career decisions when you can’t see the whole picture, as well as strategies for living with those decisions once they’re made.
