Please join Rackham alums Kate and Tom Kush for lunch and a conversation about career exploration.
Kate and Tom Kush earned their bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in the humanities from the University of Michigan in the 1970s. Having pursued successful careers outside the academy, they recognize that our nation’s economic prosperity depends on the skills of its researchers, teachers, analysts, and thinkers. Kate recently retired from Fidelity while Tom is still at MathWorks, a corporation that specializes in mathematical computing software. Their career experiences impressed on them the importance of training the next generation of scholars in the sciences, engineering and math, especially underrepresented students in the doctoral pipeline.
Space is limited to 20 people. Lunch will be served. Pre-registration is required at https://secure.rackham.umich.edu/Events/wssel.php.
Emily Thomas, a former Romance Languages and Literatures PhD student who now works for JSTOR, will be joining us to talk about her career path and also how to write effective resumes. Feel free to bring a draft of a current resume or CV to make this a more hands-on workshop.

PhD Connections is a new, one-day career conference designed to support doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows in their exploration of career paths beyond academe. Co-sponsored by the University Career Center and Rackham Graduate School, PhD students and postdoctoral scholars will learn about non-faculty career opportunities through selecting from a series of eight panels with over 30 PhD’s working in diverse fields, and workshops focused on career exploration and job search preparation. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from the keynote presenter, Fatimah Williams Castro (Founder and CEO of Beyond the Tenure Track), who will kick-off the day’s events.
