After Philosophy: Career Choices and Alternatives

A workshop for recent philosophy graduates
(and upcoming graduates)


Tuesday, April 25th, 5-7pm
Dominican University College, room 221


You've graduated, or are about to graduate, with your philosophy degree. Congratulations! You've developed excellent analytical skills, and you are keenly aware of the big ideas and issues in our world.

But now you have to put those skills to use. How will you do that?

Contrary to the stereotypes, philosophy graduates gain meaningful employment and earn healthy salaries over the course of their careers. But it takes work, skill, and a little bit of strategy to get there. And that's where this workshop comes in. Over two hours, in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere, we will help you see the options available to you within and outside the academy, assess the options that may be best for you, and present strategies for building a rewarding and lucrative career. 

During the workshop, professor Iva Apostolova will describe career options available within an academic environment. Jim Mitchell, PH.D in philosophy and former senior civil servant in the Canadian federal government, will explain how a philosophy degree can be used to build a solid career outside of the university, whether in government, the private sector, NGO's, or the like. 

The workshop is open to philosophy graduates (or upcoming graduates) of Dominican University College and other local universities.

The road to a successful career is not easy. But it can be a rewarding adventure, especially for those who like to think, argue, and persuade. Let's explore how this can be done!
