Currently in Canada, most PhDs work in diverse careers other than the traditional career path of the tenure-track professor. In this panel discussion, McGill PhD graduates working in non-academic careers will share their experiences and insights with the goal of increasing the visibility of potential graduate student career paths. The end of the session will be dedicated to audience questions to provide an opportunity for contact and informal mentorship between graduate students and panelists.

This event builds on the work of the TRaCE McGill project, which collected statistical information on the career pathways of over 4500 McGill PhDs who graduated between 2008 and 2018. The project also published the narratives of over 100 of these PhD graduates, providing further insight into the challenges and successes of PhDs in their career progressions. In 2023-2024, 22 McGill PhDs were invited to share their experiences with current students in eight TRaCE Talk events.
