Career Accelerator: Connect, Communicate, and Translate Your Academic Skills into Diverse Careers: Session 1

This interactive, two-session workshop provides tools and processes for PhD students to identify and communicate professional interests and transferable skills for careers beyond the professoriate. You will explore your interests and skills, translate your current experiences to audiences outside of academia, and initiate a plan to develop professional connections. You will work out your ideas in conversation with your graduate peers. The workshop will be especially useful for students who are early in their exploration of careers.

Living on Purpose: Application Deadline

Explore and practice essential tools for living a life of authenticity, connection, and impact.

Graduate school is a time of powerful academic, professional, and personal exploration. It's also the launching pad for the next phase of life. However, how many of us set aside time and energy to reflect with depth on our life purposes? Living on purpose, so to speak, doesn't occur accidentally. Instead, it necessitates intentional cultivation of mindsets and skills that amplify our lived experiences of authenticity, connection, and impact.

StartX Campus Demo Day

Campus Demo Day is the largest on campus event that StartX hosts each year. Here, Stanford's top students interested in entrepreneurship hear from founders both in and out of the StartX community and take time to consider how they might want to be involved with startups in the near future.
