The Department of Computer Science and faculty are excited to announce a Career Day workshop for our Ph.D. students to learn about and discuss career paths after completing their degrees.
The one-day in-person workshop is scheduled for Friday, May 5th, 2023, in Crerar 390. Our guest speakers are all former Ph.D. advisees of University of Chicago faculty or UChicago alumni. They will speak about their own career experiences covering a breadth of career paths. The workshop will start around 8:45 am CDT and end around 4:15 pm CDT with lunch included. There will also be a breakfast session for Female & Non-Binary Faculty and PhD Students, co-organized by CS and GWICS.

These panels will be followed with an AMA session where students can engage directly with panelists in small group conversations.
