A career in Consulting is a lucrative transition for individuals receiving degrees in STEM. Consulting firms value STEM-trained individuals for their critical thinking skills, and their ability to develop strategies to resolve business problems.

Consulting firms vary in size from boutiques that specialize in a particular industry to larger firms that consult on wider range of issues. In this webinar, you will learn how researchers and scientists transitioned into consulting.

Brought to you by the NY Academy of Sciences

Join the next Career Path Series on April 12 from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM EST. This session, like all of the Career Path series, is FREE to Academy members. Cornell membership is accessible to all grad students and postdocs. (Free memberships for Cornell graduate students and postdocs.)

During this panel you will hear about:

  • Opportunities for individuals to understand how to transition into the role of consulting
  • What kind of “side-hustles” should one pursue to gain more knowledge and build a network to understand this career path?
  • What are the challenges to consider when pursuing a career in consulting?


The event will be followed by a virtual networking opportunity with the panelists at 6:30 PM.

If you have specific questions you would like the panelists to address during the discussion – please email siyer@nyas.org to incorporate them into this conversation.
