PhD Career Skills Accelerator: Choosing Between Academe and Industry

Sep 25 • 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In this session, standout Northeastern PhD alumnus John de la Parra (Global Food Portfolio Manager, The Rockefeller Foundation) will share his remarkable career journey–from finishing a PhD in chemistry and chemical biology to his current role in industry. His talk will focus on his job search, in which he explored both academic and industry options before making a decision between two attractive offers. Dr. de la Parra’s discussion of his experience transitioning into a new industry position during a pandemic will be particularly valuable to current PhD-level job seekers. After his talk, he will open the floor to questions and discussion with the audience.
