Online hands-on career discovery experience

collaborating university logos

This summer, try out an online self-paced Career Discovery Experience! These career simulations, created through a multi-institutional collaboration including Cornell’s Careers Beyond Academia, offer you the chance to explore possibilities of where you can go after earning an advanced degree in a STEM field.

In each discovery module, take a few hours to focus on a different professional and the skills necessary to succeed in their careers — from technology licensing to bioinformatics in industry to university program director — completing tasks based on their real responsibilities to get a taste of what you can do after graduate school with your STEM training.

Contact Susi Varvayanis ( with questions and expressions of interest. These are a great way to test if these career paths are for you. Open to postdocs and alumni, too!
